Two popular gay-themed children's books, “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “Daddy's Roommate,” were donated to the Wasilla Public Library in Alaska, where Sarah Palin was mayor, by gay and lesbian Americans concerned with attempted censorship.

The press release was posted on BentAlaska.com: Wasilla Library Gets Gay Children's Books.

I called the Wasilla Library when they opened today.

“We received the books,” said KJ Martin-Albright, Library Administrator at the Wasilla Public Library, “and we sent a copy of our library donation policy and a receipt to Mr. Petrelis.

“Karen Davis, the youth services librarian, will decide if the books will be accepted and placed on the shelves or be given to the Friends of the Library and sold at a book faire.”

“Rest assured that we are not dodging him,” said Ms. Martin-Albright. “He should be hearing from us soon.”

 

Bent Alaska thanks Mr. Petrelis for this generous donation, and encourages Ms. Davis to accept these wonderful children's books. We look forward to seeing “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “Daddy's Roommate” on the shelves of the Wasilla Public Library.
