Weeks after she complained about the collection of books in the library of her son’s public high school, a mother from Virginia was banned from accessing the facility. 

Stacy Langton told the Washington Examiner on Monday, November 8, that Fairfax Principal Maureen Keck told her she was not allowed to enter the library anymore. This happened a day after Keck checked out a book with her son. Langton got a call from Keck who told her that it was the school's policy that parents were not allowed in the library. She said that she was informed about the policy weeks after Langton publicly confronted the Fairfax County school board at a September 23 meeting over the school library hosting graphic books that depicted sex between adult men and teenagers. However, the school librarian made no mention of such a policy and even helped her and her son find the book they were looking for when they visited the facility a day before. Some of the people who went viral after delivering speeches at school board meetings include Jason Robo, Derrick Wilburn, James Akers and Dan Stock

School policy regarding visitors

"So I asked her to send me the specific policy so I could see it for myself," the mother of six told the news site. According to the report, the policy she was informed about did not mention anything about restricting visitors from accessing the library, provided all visitors sign in at the front entrance, and obtain a visitor pass. However, the machine that provides visitor passes was out of order and had been so for weeks when Langton signed into the library. 

The moderator at the meeting cut Langdon's speech before her two minutes were up and tried to introduce the next speaker, which made her impassioned school board address go viral. She also became a centerpiece of Virginia Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin’s campaign ads in October. 

Langton getting death threats

The two books Langton complained about are 'Lawn Boy' by Jonathan Evison and 'Gender Queer' by Maia Kobabe. They were taken off the library’s shelves pending a review, The Fairfax Times reported last month.

Langton told Fox News that since speaking out publicly she and her family have received countless death threats. "I’m not getting a lot of sleep right now, nobody’s sleeping in my house because we can’t be sure that we’re safe," she said. However, this has not stopped Langton from putting her point across. She told the Washington Examiner that she planned on speaking at the board’s meeting on Thursday to finish what she had attempted to tell the board in September. “I still have no accountability," she said. 

Last month, Attorney General Merrick Garland came under fire early after he issued a memo asking the FBI to probe what he called a disturbing spike in harassment and violent threats against school leaders and teachers.
