Statement from The Brentwood Library Board of Trustees:
After posting on our website 24 hours in advance, the Board met and held an emergency meeting on Monday, October 22, 2012. All nine members were present. We had a long and thoughtful discussion, reviewing the comments on the Request for Reconsideration form for “Uncle Bobby’s Wedding” and our Board Policies regarding the reconsideration process. The Library has not had a book challenged in many years and none in the time of the current administration. We wanted to make sure that attention was taken to following procedure and policies of the Library. In the end, with all due respect, we have decided to keep the book in the collection.
