The Brentwood Public Library hasn’t had a book challenged in the seven years that Ellen Walther has been on the board, but a children’s book that touches on the subject of gay marriage is now under consideration to be removed.
Brentwood resident James Vandervoort’s daughter brought home the book, Uncle Bobby’s Wedding, without his knowledge, and now he wants it removed from the shelves. He met with the library board (though not a quorum) Monday to make his case.
“The purpose of the book is to help foster acceptance, and to glorify homosexual marriage,” he said. “I think that’s a realistic synopsis of what the book is about.”
