Original Message The Morgan County Public Library in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., does not plan to place Woodward’s book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” on its shelves.

“I don’t want to get in the middle of that,” the library’s director, Donna Crocker told The Post. “We have other Trump books.”

The Post noted that the decision has sparked controversy in the city, one that has a reported population of about 600 people. According to the Post, the city voted 75 percent for President Trump in the 2016 election.

Abby Chapple, a resident, voiced outrage at the decision in a Facebook post on Friday, comparing the move to the plot of dystopian novel, “Fahrenheit 451,” in which books are banned and burned.

“Well the future is here,” Chapple said on Facebook. “The librarian at our Berkeley Springs Library Has refused a FREE COPY of the Woodward book FEAR: Trump in the White House. She is reported to have said "We don't want that kind of book here."
