ANDOVER — Members of the Andover Public Library board are considering a request to move children’s books that include transgender characters out of the kids section.
Andover resident Marci Laffen says the books should be moved to the adult section of the library, or at least in the young adult section.
She cited the books “George,” “Lily and Dunkin,” and “I am Jazz,” which all have transgender characters.
The Wichita Eagle reports library board member Blake Cooper said Laffen’s written request said the books were part of a sexual revolution agenda and indoctrination of children.
About 55 people attended a meeting last week to discuss the issue, with both supporters and opponents present.
Library board members will decide where each of the books will be shelved at a meeting Feb. 13.
