A Hiawatha couple is asking the Cedar Rapids school district to withdraw the popular Harry Potter books from school libraries.

Brad and Brenda Birdnow will present their request to remove \"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer\'s Stone\" to the district\'s PTA Reconsideration Committee at 4:15 p.m. today at the Educational Service Center, 346 Second Ave. SW.

Brad Birdnow said he and his wife object to the way the book romantically portrays witches, warlocks, wizards, goblins and evil sorcerers.
