In Columbia County, where YA Novel "Dear Martin" Was Unapproved, Educator Tells Administrator: "Our students want to read this book"

October 23, 2019

Another tease from the results of our Open Records Request I submitted in response to Columbia County Board of Education's interference in book selection for literature classes and media centers. I redacted the names of the people mentioned in this correspondence. Also, note the response "Call me in the morning." I'm seeing a lot of requests to discuss this matter over the phone. Could it be because e-mail leaves a record?


Note that the author of the e-mail refers to Columbia County Libraries initially as the media centers. The second time the author uses Columbia County Library, the author means the public libraries, not the school libraries.


Two copies of Dear Martin are currently in the Columbia County public libraries.
