Mark your calendars for the March 20th, 2023 Meeting at the Ada County Courthouse at 6pm to Re-Establish the Meridian Library District. We need people to show up and testify at the meeting. You will need to be there by 5pm to register to testify. This is where the rubber meets the road, we need to convince the Ada County Commissioners to put the vote on the next ballot and let WE THE PEOPLE DECIDE IF WE WANT THIS MATERIAL IN OUR LIBRARIES.

ACTION ITEM 1: Go the meeting and TESTIFY. The Meridian Library District trustees have shut off public comment at their meetings (taxation without representation) and continue to give MINORS ACCESS TO OBSCENE AND SEXUALLY EXPLICIT MATERIAL. Here is a link (https://tinyurl.com/warning-explicit) to a SMALL SAMPLE of what is available. If you show this to any parent or grandparent, it will be obvious to them that this is not appropriate for minors. You will have three minutes for your testimonial. Please send an email to info.ccom@proton.me if you can testify.

ACTION ITEM 2: If you cannot attend, please email the ADA COUNTY COMMISSIONERS at BOCC1@adacounty.id.gov and tell them to put our “petition initiative on the next ballot for a vote by WE THE PEOPLE of Meridian to decide.”

The MLD Trustees and the Library Director have labeled the people of Meridian that choose to speak up as CHRISTIAN NATIONALISTS AND RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS. They also claim that there is NO OBSCENE AND SEXUALLY EXPLICIT MATERIAL AT ANY LIBRARY IN THE STATE OF IDAHO! All you need to do is go this link, https://tinyurl.com/warning-explicit for a SMALL SAMPLE of what Meridian’s children can check out themselves at the MLD.

Please help WE THE PEOPLE of Meridian Re-Establish a Library that meets community standards.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
