Actor and producer Kirk Cameron celebrated on Monday when two public libraries in Scarsdale, New York, and Indianapolis, Indiana agreed to host a story hour for the reading of his new children’s book “As You Grow.”

The book delivers a Christian, faith-based message to kids which focuses on positive attributes like kindness, patience, compassion, and other qualities that are emphasized in the Bible.

Cameron focused on the two libraries given that they have hosted drag queen story hours in June as well as other programs meant to promote diversity in the community, according to Fox News.

When Cameron originally reached out to the libraries, however, they refused to allow him to host a story hour with both libraries saying they were not interested. In response, the actor threatened legal action which led to them giving in.

“They caved,” said Cameron’s publisher to Fox News Digital. “I’m happy that the two libraries changed their decision and will allow my voice to be heard and my book to be read,” Cameron said about the victory, per The Daily Wire.


“I hope they realized that their position of denying me a story hour reading was not only unfair and illegal, but that we would all be better off if we listened to each other’s perspectives,” the actor continued, adding that he hopes “that this victory acts as a source of courage for Christians and conservatives across the country to be brave and not back down, making sure that we are the salt of the earth and the light of the darkness.”

Cameron reached out to over 50 libraries across the country wanting to share his book with children, however, he was denied repeatedly. These two victories, which he hopes to expand into more wins in local libraries in other states, are just the beginning.

The “Growing Pains” star told Fox News Digital that the libraries, while being willing to host the events, have been unsupportive in advertising the event. The book reading, however, will still be taking place on December 29th in the Indianapolis Public Library and December 30th in the Scarsdale Public Library.

“I love situations in which we have two ways to win and zero ways to lose,” explained the CEO of Cameron’s book publisher Trent Talbot. “We forced these bullies to either take off their masks and show their true colors of unabashed anti-Christian and anti-American bias (as well as catch themselves in a spicy lawsuit) OR the bullies were going to realize that Kirk and Brave were here to fight and they would back down.”

This victory, even if small, showcases how faith-based conservatives can turn the tide in the culture war if they don’t back down and stand for what they believe is right.
