Formal complaint filed against WB Library - Gay website for KIDS

A West Bend resident is challenging whether the West Bend Community Memorial Library Web site should include a link to a list of fiction and non-fiction book about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues intended for young adults in grades 6 through 12.

A complaint, filed by Ginny Maziarka, will be discussed at the Library Board’s monthly meeting in March.

When called at his home for comment, Library Board vice-president Tom Fitz said he had no knowledge of the Web site page. Maziarka tried to have the issue discussed at the Library Board’s February meeting, but her e-mail request to be placed on the agenda was submitted too late. “She was too late by state statutes, so I am going to ask the Library Board to please have it on the agenda in March,” West Bend Community Library Director Michael Tyree said.

Correction: Maziarka did not try to have this issue discussed at the Feb. meeting. No request was made other than asking for accountability and removal of the website.
