In November, 2008 staff received an Expression of Concern from Mrs. Kim Borchers requesting that four books in the Library’s adult collection, The Joy of Sex, The Joy of Gay Sex, The Lesbian Kama Sutra and Sex for Busy People be restricted to adult access and check-out, citing Chapter 21-4301c, also known as the “harmful to minors statute” of the Kansas Statutes. Staff reviewed the Expression of Concern and in accordance with the Library Materials Selection Policy responded, declined to take any action in restricting access by age to these titles. Mrs. Borchers then sent a letter to the Board of Trustees on December 28, 2008, making the same request of the Board.
