Our Response to Kirk Cameron & Brave Books Media Articles
On December 7, one of our libraries, Rochambeau, was mentioned in a Fox News Digital article, which referenced Kirk Cameron and Brave Books. Brave Books mentioned no particular author or book in their call.
We receive many unsolicited requests from individuals groups to co-host events, which we are always happy to consider. In the vast majority of cases, they do not result in partnership.Typically, as with Brave Books, we suggest that the inquirer considers holding their own event in a bookable meeting room space.
Our libraries are free civic spaces, and our meeting rooms are available free of charge to the public. We provide space for many types of groups, including religious organizations. Prior to the COVID pandemic, we hosted around 700 privately booked events a year, and numbers are gradually returning to pre-pandemic levels. All applicants for meeting space must comply with our meeting room policy. Brave Books is free to request a meeting room space to hold an event at one of our libraries, should it wish to do so.
