WEST BEND - Concerned with the presence

Memorial Library, West Bend residents Ginny and Jim Maziarka are
The Maziarkas have filed a formal,
written complaint with the library. The complaint has been placed on
the March agenda and will be heard by the members of the Library
Board when they convene for their monthly meeting on Tuesday night.
Due to a large crowd that is expected
to attend the proceedings, the meeting has been moved from the
library board room to the City Council Chambers at City Hall.
"We find the books for youth on
homosexuality to be biased, gay-affirming, promotional and
romanticized," the Maziarkas said in an e-mail sent to the
Daily News. "We believe our library should be offering
appropriate, wholesome literature to our youth instead of pursuing
the illegitimate goals of transforming the views of other people's
children on the contentious issue of homosexuality."
