Everyone else seems to have blogged about it, but in case you missed it, The Marshall Democrat-News is reporting that the Library board met last Wednesday to have the first reading on their materials selection policy.

Blakely also applied the proposed policy to the banned books. According to Blakely, “Blankets” and “Fun Home” only meet one of the general criteria for selection — the timeliness of the subject matter.

I know that’s where I go to get my graphic novels.
