Library Backs Book On Same-Sex Parents

The Calvert County Board of Library Trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to keep a controversial book about two male penguins where it is shelved: in the children’s section of county libraries, along with other picture books.

“It is a great book for a certain family, but not for my family and a lot of families I know,” Bubser said at the meeting. “I believe in everyone’s rights. I believe in freedom of speech, but this is not right for my family.”
