After warnings, Bible-preaching teen banned from Columbus libraries

A 16-year-old boy has been banned from all branches of the Chattahoochee Valley Regional Library System for six months for proselytizing.

According to a letter from Kirsten Edwards, acting manager of the North Columbus Public Library, Caleb Hanson repeatedly asked patrons "about their religious faith and to offer biblical advice."

Caleb received the letter through his parents, Tim and Elizabeth Hanson, who are in Columbus on furlough from missions work.

He said he was given several warnings, since June, from the library on Britt David Road.

“At first (library employees) warned me not to do it,” he said. “Then they took me into an office and told me not to do it.”

He said he then began talking to people outside the library, and patrons continued to complain.
