Book Battles Are Raging Nationwide. This Library Could Be the First to Close.

From a story in the Seattle Times by David Gutman headlined “Book battles are raging nationwide. A WA libary could be the first to close.”:

Book battles are raging across the nation, but none have carried the kind of stakes as the one here in Dayton, a one-stoplight farming community in the southeastern corner of Washington.

For the county’s only library, the battle has turned, quite literally, existential: Voters will decide in November whether to shut it down.
