West Bend council will be asked to reconsider library decision

After our show last night, we received a call from a West Bend Common Council member who is planning to make a motion at the next council meeting (Monday, May 4) to rescind last week's decision to reject the reappointment of four library board members.

Rescinding the decision would give the council another opportunity to discuss and vote on the reappointment of Tom Fitz, Mary Reilly-Kliss, James Pouros, and Nick Dobberstein to the West Bend Community Library Board.

Rumor has it that more members of the public than usual plan to attend Monday's meeting. It will be interesting to see how this affects the council's discussion.

By the way, Publisher's Weekly has picked up on the story, and the National Coalition Against Censorship, American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression, PEN American Center, and Association of American Publishers have expressed their concern over the situation to the West Bend Common Council.
