A Mt. Angel (OR) Public Library patron complained that the book “tells children that adults are wrong about gender – too much information for young ones.” Retained.


This children’s picture book on gender identity was challenged by a parent at the Marathon County (WI) Public Library, who sought to have the book reclassified and moved from the children’s room. After reading and discussing the book in accordance with its policies, the library determined that the title was correctly cataloged.
