Andover library asked to move transgender children books

January 16, 2019 - 6:19 pm

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, requested that the books be moved to the adult section of the library, or at least to the young adult section.

About 55 people, both supporting and opposing the changes, met to talk about the issue.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Laffen's written request said the books were "part of a sexual revolution agenda and indoctrination of children."

Laffen cited the books "George," ''Lily and Dunkin," and "I am Jazz," which all have transgender characters.

Library board members will meet February 13 to decide where each of the books will be shelved.
