FOX News ran a national broadcast today about the Leesburg, Florida controversy over the Gossip Girl series of books in a public library. The segment, Unfit to Print?, features Dixie Fechtel and Dianne Venetta, the two mothers who brought their complaints before the Library Board, had them rejected, and are now petitioning the City Commission to have the books moved from the Young Adult section.
In the interview, Venetta states, “this is not about censorship” but then calls upon parents “to go and see what’s in the youth sections of your library.”
Read a letter that the Kids’ Right to Read Project sent to the Leesburg Library Advisory Board, stating that parents may not demand that public library holdings reflect their personal views.
