From the "things I don't miss about SC" file.

Easley's new library has a summer reading program with a pizza party afterwards.

Some parents, apparently of the religious nutball persuasion, object to one weekly session because it is advertised as such: “Get to know your inner cosmic being through astrology, palmistry, numberology [sic]. Partner up to practice palm-reading, or try your hand at tarot cards.” Obviously a bunch of superstitious nonsense, but as long as it's presented as such, it's completely harmless. But no, according to those parents, it was indoctrinating kids into the dreaded occult.

As a result, the library drops the reading program.

But still has the pizza party.
