The Exchange 022818
Welcome to The Exchange, on Siouxland Public Media, I’m Mary Hartnett. Today we are on the road at the Town Square Coffeehouse in Orange City, Iowa. We are here to hold a community roundtable to talk about the recent controversy surrounding some books at the Orange City Public Library. These children’s books discuss issues that are pertinent to LGBTQ families. A member of the community put forth a petition calling for the books to be removed or relabeled because he felt they were not appropriate for children in this community.
