Appeals to Have Books Banned in Marathon County Library Denied
Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 -- 9:00 AM
(Mike Leischner, WSAU) A group of residents who challenged the placement of two books in the Marathon County Library had their appeals denied on Monday.
Copies of Making a Baby by Rachel Greener and You be You! The Kids Guide to Gender, Sexuality, and Family by Jonathan Branfman will both remain where they are currently placed in the juvenile section despite a request from the group to have them moved to the adult section.
The decision came Monday when the library's board of trustees voted to go with a recommendation from a group who spent more than 60 hours researching the titles. Some were concerned about the content of the books- saying it may be too mature for children.
But others said the titles are educational, and it's up to parents if they want their children to consume them or not. The books cannot be challenged again for five years.
