Just wondering.....are the librarians taking vacation time to attend this conference? Just a thought. No big deal.

Paid to trash talk city
It is time for the citizens of West Bend to address Mayor Kristine Deiss and ask her why she is allowing our paid community representatives, library director Michael Tyree and young adult librarian Kristin Pekoll as well as her appointed Library Board member Barbara Deters, the president nonetheless, to trash-talk West Bend at the American Librarian Associations upcoming conference.
Taxpayers should be outraged that the librarians are putting together power points and such to show the nation how they stomped on our community standards and shut down the community they promise to serve.
We are tired of being told that the American Library Association can tell West Bend what they can do.
We cannot, and will not, stand for this next round of ammunition being shot at our fine city.
We believe the youth in West Bend are worth every step of this fight, and the ALA , our librarians, and our mayor need to uphold the high standards we demand.
SO DO WE.
