HOMER, Alaska (AP) — An advisory board for the Homer Public Library is expected to consider whether more than 40 books for children and juveniles with LGBTQ+ themes should be removed or moved to the adult section of the library.
Homer Public Library Director Dave Berry denied a request by Melissa Martin to move three titles. The Homer News reports the board is set to hear her appeal Tuesday. Since Martin's initial request, another petition has added over three dozen more books to the list. In Ketchikan this year, voters declined to cut the library's budget after some residents complained about drag queens leading story time for children.
