Community members met Monday at the Pleasant Valley Branch for a panel on gay families and to discuss whether it’s right to pull a book that deals with these families from school library bookshelves. The meeting, hosted by the OUTreach Resource Center, came a week after a Davis School District decision to pull “In Our Mothers’ House” from its elementary school shelves. The book is still be available to students, but will be kept behind the checkout counter and will require a parent’s permission slip to be checked out.
