Patron recanted her complaint
The Newport Library Board of Trustees held firm in its support of the library's open access policy after the library received a complaint from patrons Cheyne and Mary Jo Turner about two videos their 15-year old son checked out. The Turners later withdrew their complaint; the majority of the community who responded to the incident were supportive of the library's policy not to restrict certain materials to adults only.
