The library board is not appointed by the Fiscal Court.

The tax rate was raised from .0063% to .0064%; that is not "1%" as the story indicates. In addition, library boards are not able to raise tax rates to whatever level they like, at least not the one in Pulaski Co. The board sends their budget to fiscal court, which then squeals but accepts the budget. The board members are also appointed by fiscal court. It is done this way to keep politics out of the library. The last thing we need is a government entity deciding what materials are appropriate for purchase. A poorly researched story is worse than no story at all.
