Stay-at-home mother faces jail time after arrest warrant issued for unreturned books at Grimes County library

Navasota Texas – As if pushing through postpartum, completing house chores and taking care of children aren’t enough — one mother says a warrant was issued for her arrest after not returning a library book.

“I really didn’t believe it. Like I real thought I’m on Punked or something like this is not true,” Kaylee Morgan said.

Kaylee Morgan, a wife and a stay-at-home mother of five, rented a few books from the Navasota Public Library in Grimes County, Texas in March of last year.

They were for her homeschooled children.

During that time, Morgan was experiencing a rough pregnancy, dealing with hyperemesis and placenta previa. She didn’t return the books by the due date. She said her husband returned all but one book because it didn’t fit inside the library’s drop box.

When she went to renew her driver’s license, she found out there was a warrant for a $570 ticket — yes, $570 … for overdue books. As she tried to explain the situation to Judge Patricia M. Gruner, but Morgan said the judge did not want to hear her “excuses” and said she needed to “take responsibility.”

“This has definitely been stressful. I exclusively breastfed my daughter so now I’m having to navigate pumping in case I get arrested,” she said.

Morgan said when she offered to pay for the missing books, even though they’ve been returned, the judge told her that they were beyond that point in the process and Morgan now needed to make things right.

“She told me that by returning the books late, I had done the equivalent of walking out of Walmart without paying for merchandise,” Morgan wrote on her GoFundMe account. “They now refuse to reinstate my license until I pay the ticket and there is an active warrant out for my arrest in Grimes County.”

Morgan said they are a single-income family and barely make ends meet with five children, including their 3-month-old baby.

She said this has also put a strain on her breastfeeding journey as she is forcing herself to use a breast pump in case she goes to jail over the library books.

Morgan wants to fight the case but does not have the additional funds.
