GILLETTE, Wyo. — The Campbell County Public Library System board’s next meeting will take place in Wright on May 22.

The meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. at the Wright Community Center. Board members will be touring the library that day, as they said at a previous board meeting.

Agenda items for the May 22 meeting include discussion of the fiscal year 2023–24 budget, the special committee, the weeding process and the June 26 board meeting.

Campbell County commissioners might attend the June 26 board meeting, according to the board schedule.

Anyone who wishes to provide written commentary on the library board’s proposed changes to the collection development policy must submit the commentary by May 30.

The board began line-by-line review of the policy document in January. Revisions include the elimination of references to the American Library Association and the addition of a Policy for Protecting Children from Harmful, Sexually Explicit Material in Areas Designated for Minors.

Written comment will be accepted at Campbell County Public Library, 2101 S. 4-J Road, Gillette, WY, 82718, during normal business hours, according to a notice of intent to adopt rules. People can also email comments to Director Terri Lesley at terri.lesley@campbellcountywy.gov.

The Campbell County Public Library board will meet at 4 p.m. June 8 to discuss and consider formally adopting the changes, the notice said. The board will take public comment at the meeting before the vote.
