Walker County mother concerned about school libraries

Jenn Smeiles, a parent of three living in Chickamauga, Georgia, said she's seen the news and viral videos about inappropriate material in school libraries nationwide - but didn't think it could happen in Walker County.

Based on her recent research, Smeiles now thinks she was wrong.

"As I have taken many hours over the past few months looking through the media center listings of the 15 Walker County schools, my heart has been broken and my mind blown that such vulgar, racist, harmful content is available to our students," she said at Monday night's Walker County Board of Education meeting.

In a phone interview, Walker County Schools Superintendent Damon Raines said the board and his staff are reviewing the material Smeiles presented.
