Hermon survey reveals residents help screening college library books for sexual content material

Hermon residents who weighed in on whether or not the college committee ought to put in place a coverage to undertake age-appropriate requirements for library books containing sexual content material supported the thought by 58 %, based on Councilor Danielle Haggerty, who spearheaded the hassle.

The council in January by a vote of 4-3 authorised spending as much as $6,000 to survey residents’ help for a coverage that might establish books with sexual content material within the city’s three colleges. The outcomes of the survey have been made public at Thursday’s council assembly.

Of the 5,095 surveys mailed, 1,146, or 22.5 %, have been returned. Of these, 581 strongly supported the coverage, 64 considerably supported it whereas 44 respondents considerably opposed the thought and 425 strongly opposed it. Some surveys have been returned that weren’t stuffed out.
