Citizens Defending Freedom Organizes "See You at the Library" Event Despite Attempted Sabotage

Updated: Aug 4, 2023

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas — Citizens Defending Freedom, a non-profit that helps American citizens defend their faith and freedom, will organize and promote “See You at the Library” events in July and August, despite the American Library Association’s attempts to thwart the events.

Citizens Defending Freedom - Williamson County is organizing the county-wide events, identifying city hosts and promoting “See You at the Library” events at their local libraries. Originally, many of the libraries reported “scheduling conflicts” when Citizens Defending Freedom first inquired.

It was later reported by Fox News that actor Kirk Cameron and his publisher Brave Books, who launched the initiative to gather Christian, conservative families in their local libraries on August 5 for book readings, had been sabotaged by the American Library Association (ALA).

In a video presented to librarians on June 8, the ALA schemed with its local library officials to skirt the events. The presentation reportedly included a slide that specifically described “how to prevent Brave Books story hours from happening at libraries across the country.”

Cameron’s events were in part a counter to drag queen story hours, which are hosted regularly at libraries nationwide.

Citizens Defending Freedom - Williamson County will host nine Brave Books “See You At The Library” library events anyway, after working with local libraries to get the events scheduled.

Two events will take place on July 29th, at two libraries in the county, one will take place on August 4. On August 5, the day the event will be celebrated nationally, Citizens Defending Freedom will host “See You at the Library” events at five more libraries in the county.

The dates and locations are:

  • Cedar Park Library, July 29 from 11:30am - 12:45pm

  • Georgetown Library, July 29 from 9:45 - 11:00am

  • Florence Library, August 4 from 10:30 - 11:30am

  • Taylor Library, August 5 from 9:00am – 11:00am

  • Hutto Library, August 5 from 10:00am – 12:00pm

  • Leander Library, August 5 from 10:00am – 11:00am

  • Jarrell Library, August 5 from 12:30pm – 1:30pm

  • Round Rock Library, August 5 from 1:00pm – 2:00pm

  • Liberty Hill Library, August 5 from 10:00am – 11:00am

Hundreds of members of Citizens Defending Freedom plan to attend the event in defiance of their subjugation by the ALA.

“We are gathering at our local libraries to celebrate our Christian family values, despite the fact that the leftists at the ALA despise our values and tried to stop us,” said Marcia Watson, Citizens Defending Freedom - Williamson County executive director. “They’ll host perverted drag queen story hours for men dressed like women who dance for children but seldom host every day American Christians. Our events not only educate American citizens but they are also a celebration of American values.”
