Petition Against Banning/Moving a Children’s Book at the Upshur County Public Library

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

There is currently a debate on whether to keep a book in circulation or move the book to a different section at the Upshur County Public Library. The book in question is Prince and Knight by Daniel Haack and is about an LGBTQ+ relationship. There will be a meeting on November 20, at 4pm to discuss keeping the book in circulation or moving the children’s book to the adult section of the library. Treating LGBTQ+ books as dangerous reading material will only create more division in our community. The book was written for children to show acceptance and love, and it is important that children have access to these types of stories that’s been proven to reduce bullying, hate crimes, and suicide amongst LGBTQ+ youth.
