Books about Queen Elizabeth are being withdrawn from Texas libraries. The explanation might shock you.
Mindy Selby, the librarian at a Fort Worth elementary school, was unaware that Queen
Elizabeth II was "under medical supervision" at Balmoral Castle when she arrived at work on
Thursday morning. Hours later, Buckingham Palace issued a statement confirming that the
96-year-old monarch of Britain had passed away. As soon as the news broke today, Selby
remarked, "I started culling my books displaying Elizabeth as the present UK monarch."
Selby, a librarian at Hubbard Heights Elementary, used the incident as a "mini-lesson" for
the pupils on the need to update libraries whenever significant historical events take place.
As kids learn about the historic milestone that is Queen Elizabeth II's departure, Selby and
the hundreds of other librarians from Fort Worth schools will finish this protracted process
