The Prattville-Autauga Public Library is holding a special meeting of the board of trustees to replace the recently-resigned library director.
The Prattville-Autauga Public Library has become the subject of local attention in recent months due to the inclusion of several LGBTQ+-friendly children and teen books.
The growing gaggle of concerned individuals has gathered over 80 books for minors on gender, sex, sexual orientation pronouns and other LGBTQ issues, such as detailing same-sex love stories.
The growing voices in opposition to the books' inclusion have made continued appeals to the Library board, as well as the county commission and Prattville City Council.
The Library director, Lindsey Milam, recently resigned from her position and is no longer listed as director on the library's website. It is still unclear what Milam's reasons were for leaving, and those opposed to the books' inclusion have asked for a copy of the resignation letter via a public records request.
The Board scheduled the meeting for Sunday at 2:30 at the library. However, they will not entertain public comment at that time.
