Alleged “book burner” fired from Chattanooga Library

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The City of Chattanooga has fired a part-time library specialist for destroying books.

Officials accused Cameron Dequintez Williams of taking books from conservative authors and burning them in December.

Williams led several protests last year in Chattanooga and was charged with blocking streets during them.

On Friday, Library officials held a hearing on the incident and they officially fired him on Wednesday.

“The City of Chattanooga has policies in place to protect the public’s interest, and we follow those directives,” said Library Executive Director Corinne Hill.
