HUNTSVILLE – About a dozen or so Huntsville residents spoke passionately about the Read With Pride display celebrating the LGBTQ+ community. Some say it's about time that type of literature is made available, while others defended their choice to avoid it and shield it from their children.There's a popular saying that reading is fundamental, but some say that depends on what you read.'The library staff was asked to remove all displays in the library until such time that the city can review the policies and procedures of governing said displays,' said Huntsville City Manager, Aron Kulhavy.
