NBCNews: Uvalde librarian thought about canceling storytime. Instead, she made it a refuge

At a time when librarians across the country have faced baseless allegations and threats of criminal charges from parents who’ve accused them of providing pornography to children, Morgan wanted to show the community what, in his view, a library really is. 
A refuge. A safe place. An escape”
