library patron loses privileges after tearing magazine
Here's A Follow Up on John Callaghan.
His decision to rip the cover off a gay and lesbian news magazine has cost him his borrowing privileges for a month, the Williamsburg Regional Library director said today.
"Everyone is deeply concerned about this issue and is concerned that library policy, as well as Virginia Code, was violated," said library director John Moorman. "It's an issue I think of tolerance and respect for the wide variety of individuals that live in our community."
Callaghan, a resident of Ford's Colony, said he won't contest the library's decision.
"If that's what they wish to do, that's their business. It's their library," he said. "I've made a point and I'm not a rabble-rouser. I'm not trying to cause trouble. I did what I thought was right."
