JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library Board tabled a policy that would define sensitive material.

In recent months, people have spoken out for and against a June LGBTQIA+ display.

“It’s more about the fact that everybody would define that in a different way,” said David Eckert, director of the Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library. “That’s where the trouble is, that’s what the problem is. That is what is kind of what the danger is going down the road.”

The board passed two policies at a meeting Monday, Oct. 12, pertaining to when certain items can be displayed and a mask policy.

The definition of sensitive material will be discussed at a future meeting.
