There are many people and organizations actively working to protect the innocence of the children of Washoe County. One group of citizens has started a petition to remove sexually explicit books that have been found on the shelves of both the Washoe County Library System and the Washoe County School District School Libraries. When attempting to read these books out loud at multiple Washoe County Board of County Commissioner meetings, Washoe County School Board of Trustee meetings and Library Board of Trustee meetings, the public has been gaveled down and silenced. The books are deemed too offensive to be read at our community meetings.
Read excerpts from these books (warning! they are obscene), linked to Capitol Resource Institute (a non-profit with a focus on removing obscene books from the school libraries), HERE. Decide for yourself and consider signing the petition. The petition link is also found below.
Wake Up Washoe County, a local non-profit founded by Nichelle Hull, is diligently working to start libraries that are safe for the perusal of children. Please see her book drive below.
Paul White, founder of Education Crusade, gives the state of Washoe County Schools in a series of short videos (see links in newsletter). He offers practical solutions to fixing the schools so that students may once again learn. He includes known, workable corrective measures.
As the season of giving quickly approaches, I challenge us to each ask ourselves, is there something that I can do to protect the innocence of the children. After all, they are worth it; they have to be as they are the future.

We did request (by email to the Library Director) that Drag Queen Story Hour be placed on the Agenda for discussion and resolution, yet we did not meet the time requirements for it to be agendized this meeting.
Please note that meetings for the Library Board were cancelled for the months of June, July and August of 2022. This is in the Agenda Packet. It is somewhat disconcerting that with the record attendance at the September meeting and the concerns regarding Drag Queen Story Hour that the item was not placed on the Agenda without a public request.
From the Agenda Packet:
“Library Director Update 10/10/22 Library Board of Trustees Update Our next LBOT meeting will be on October 19 at the Sparks Library. You will notice minor edits to the bylaws and new agenda format emphasizing patron conduct. We had many public comments at the September meeting protesting the Drag Queen Storytime. I am unsure why they chose September to protest when we have our Pride events in June and July. I know libraries were generally under attack during Banned Books Week (the same week as our board meeting), which forced libraries to close due to bomb threats. I have met with our county counsel and board chair about conduct during the meeting and how to handle it. I am confident that we will be able to maintain order in future meetings.”
Notice of a Special Meeting
Washoe County Commissioners
Friday, June 24th, 2022 at 10:00 a.m.
1001 E. Ninth Street, Building A Reno, NV 89512
The time to become involved with what is happening in our community is NOW. The Washoe County Commissioners have called a Special Meeting, (the purpose is to certify, or not, the election) “to Canvass the Vote, pursuant to the direction of the Chair of the Board”. Did you experience anomalies during your voting process? Machines not working? More than one trainee at a voting center? More than one ballot received? Ballots arriving at your address without your name on them? Ballots not received? Was your party changed when you didn’t change it? Did you opt out of receiving a mail in ballot and being falsely told you may only vote on a machine while being refused a paper ballot be printed for you? Has your ballot gone to adjudication? Did you see ballots arriving or leaving in bags with only one person delivering the ballots (two are required)?
If you had ANY issues or abnormalities or were witness to any issues or abnormalities, I encourage you to report them here: www.washoegop.org. The link at the top of every page will take you to the forms and emails necessary to report the problems.
If you can find a moment please attend the Special Meeting on Friday at 10:00am. This is where the Commissioners either do the right thing or they attempt to force the people to swallow down the fraud like a bitter pill regarding this election. Our presence, altogether, will demonstrate to the Commissioners what the people they are sworn to represent want.
Hope to see you there,
