Originally, Ginny Maziarka wanted the pro-gay books removed, and "balance" inserted into the West Bend Library's young adult section. Then she shifted gears and targeted books she deemed "sexually explicit" and even seemed to think the library housed "child pornography".
This, remember, brought out all the crazies, including the CCLU, those four elderly Milwaukee men who apparently drove to West Bend Library and became psychologically harmed just because Baby Be-Bop was shelved there.

Next stop: evolution!

Now, another person within their group of supporters wants us to re-catalog books that are science but from a creationist viewpoint. I told her no,” Tyree said.I'd love to hear more about this challenge. I wonder where these books are currently shelved, and what changes are being requested.
