Citing “sexual content,” issues of bullying, rebelling against police, and refusing to take medications, Lily and Dunkin, George by Alex Gino, and I Am Jazz by Jazz Jennings and Jessica Herthel were challenged at the Andover (KS) Public Library. The request was to remove the books from the children’s area. After a review process, the library decided to retain them all as cataloged. When the decision was appealed by the parents, the library board voted to retain the books.
