Brentwood, MO: “Library Board Unanimous: Challenged Book Stays”
From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
Trustees for the Brentwood Public Library held a special meeting this week and voted to keep “Uncle Bobby’s Wedding” in its children’s collection.
The library was responding to a written challenge from a Brentwood resident, who did not like the book’s subject matter. “Uncle Bobby’s Wedding” is a picture book involving a young guinea pig and her beloved uncle, who is going to marry. The marriage involves a male partner, but the niece’s concern is more about whether her uncle will still have time for her.
