LIVINGSTON, La. (BRPROUD) – The Livingston Parish Library Board of Control will discuss reclassifying certain books at their regular meeting on Tuesday.
The meeting comes after Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks sent a letter to Livingston Parish Library officials expressing his concerns about certain books “that are controversial in nature” found in the young adult section of the library. In his letter, Ricks suggests moving the books to a more adult-type section.
A July Livingston Parish Library Board meeting sparked debate on book content.
Books that were on a list for possible bans or restrictions included “Dating and Sex: A Guide for the 21st Century Teen Boy,” “Queer: The Ultimate LGBTQ Guide for Teens,” “It Feels Good to Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity,” “Polygamy,” “Transgender People,” “Sex is a Funny Word,” “The Gender Quest Workbook” and “Gay Parenting.”
The Tuesday meeting will be at 5 p.m. at the Main Branch located on Iowa Street.
