After look at kids’ books, Llano County to discuss library system, create new board
The Llano County Commissioners Court will discuss the county library system during its meeting Monday, Jan. 10.
The Commissioners Court previously directed the Llano County Library System’s three branches to close for three days in December so staff could evaluate youth and children’s materials. During a previous statement, Llano County Judge Ron Cunningham said the evaluation was to “ensure placement of books at all three locations is consistent with the age-appropriate section.”
The Llano County Library System consists of the Llano County Library, the Lakeshore Branch Library, and the Kingsland Branch Library.
The Commissioners Court also voted to restructure the current Llano County Library Advisory Board, which will be finalized Jan. 10.
The meeting takes place at 9 a.m. at the Llano County Justice of the Peace 4 Courtroom, 2001 Texas 16 North, Suite B, in Llano. It is open to the public.
