Today's West Bend News:
A number of our animal species are becoming increasingly endangered.
Among them are the gentle, noble and intelligent mountain gorillas. Internet sources say only about 600 to 700 of these majestic creatures are alive today and that number dwindles as their homeland is destroyed.
The West Bend Library is partnering with S.e.e.d, the environmental club at West Bend High School, to show people that what we do locally can affect things globally.
I have no problem with those who want to spend their time trying to save gorillas, whales, pandas, ants, et. al, from extinction, but I am wondering....
Would the library consider partnering with pro-life WBHS students by placing a box for maternity clothing and baby items for collection at the library to encourage women not to kill their babies?
Do public libraries generally advocate for anything not related to library issues?
Since the last library board meeting minutes posted are from February 2nd, one can hardly know if the library board approved this advocacy or not, but one can certainly learn a lot about the crappy, leaky roof.
