Town votes to defund Michigan library over 5 LGBTQ-themed books

A small Michigan town is locked in a war over words. The battle in Jamestown Township is over five books with LGBTQ+ themes…. A group called the Jamestown Conservatives recently led a successful drive to essentially defund the town’s library and remove the books from shelves. “These books and lifestyle choices are destructive and wrong,” said one Jamestown resident during a meeting on removing the books.

Library board president Larry Walton says removing the books is censorship.
