CASTLETON–About 150 people showed up last week at a meeting of the Public Library Board of Trustees to protest the firing of long-time library Director Darlene Miller.
The board voted 5 to 2 to terminate Mrs. Miller, who is out on medical leave. She was informed of the board’s decision by courier, reportedly while she was sick in bed.
Residents who attended the meeting expressed outrage at the news. Calling for answers, one by one, they also described the positive impact Mrs. Miller has had on the community, the schools, the library and their families.
