Didn't know she was fired. She was very good the times I visited the library with children.

She was fired. On Facebook there is a "justice for Julie" group. Apparently no one, including Julie knows why she was fired.

Julie Allen was not only fired without cause, but it was done so with Judge Hale and an officer present. She was escorted off the premises. She is not allowed to see her personnel file. Having known Julie for many years, I feel that the county needs to know that Julie was the heart of their children's program and was and is loved by many Rusk County citizens.

I cannot fathom what Mrs. Julie did to get fired! Of all the years I have taken my children to the library, she has been kind and very helpful. I believe there is no one better suited for her job. I am shocked and appalled not only to find that she has been relived of her duties, but also because there was no reason stated. I know Mrs. Julie, and love her as most families who are patrons of the library do. I hope this is a discrepancy and that she will be back greeting children with a warm smile, hugs, and candy in no time. Until then, I personally will continue to be shocked and appalled by this occurrence.

Was it because she was considered an "at will" employee and NO reason for firing her has to be given? A police officer present and an escort off the premises? Or is there more to the story than we presently know right now?
