Librarian fired for protecting kids from 'nudity, sexual references'

A lawsuit has been filed against a local library in New Hampshire after officials there fired a librarian over her "political values" – and the fact that she supported a conservative perspective about public libraries.

The American Center for Law and Justice said its lawsuit is on behalf of Arlene R. Quaratiello, a conservative Republican member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives.

As her work there is part-time, she also had started a full-time job as a librarian at the public facility in Raymond, New Hampshire.

Just months into her employment, several petitions by citizens were filed in the town, both trying to remove the local – and tax-funded – facility from the American Library Association due to that organization's extreme leftist agenda.

Specifically, the ACLJ reported, those petitions wanted to assure that the children's room in the library "will be free of any books with content containing nudity, gender identity, sex or sexual references."

In fact, across America, ALA ideologues have gone to court themselves to insist that that very offensive material remains in libraries and accessible to children.

"We must defend the rights of public employees to speak out on crucial issues affecting our country," the ACLJ said.

It charges that officials at the Dudley Tucker Library violated Quaratiello's First Amendment rights.

"It is sad that such a measure would be controversial, but unfortunately, it was," the ACLJ reported. "The director of the library, Kirsten Corbett, vigorously opposed these petitions and used everything within her power, including library social media accounts, to urge people to defeat these petitions."

The ACLJ's client "took a different view of these sorts of issues."
