The Tennessee Conservative Staff –

Places that should be safe havens and an escape from the world are becoming more and more dangerous for children as public libraries across the state continue to be infiltrated with books full of sexualized content and queer ideology.

One East Tennessee grandmother has had enough after discovering explicitly inappropriate materials in the children’s section of the Kingsport library where she had taken her 2 and 4-year-old grandchildren.


“I came upon a book titled ‘Here and Queer: A Queer Girl’s Guide to Life’. Out of curiosity, I picked it up and started browsing thru the pages of this book.   This book has very explicit sexual details of various sexual acts.   A ten-year-old could pick this book up and read it,” she states.

On July 25, 2023, she initiated the process to request that the book be removed from the library’s inventory. Within 30 days of receiving the request, the library has to respond. The library’s director then notifies the Board of Directors and they work together to make a determination as to the future of the book. If the individual filing the request is not pleased with the results of that determination, an appeal may be filed. Ultimately, the Library Director makes the final decision as to whether the book stays or not.

She goes on to note that she did some research and found “many other perverted, sexual books” in both the Kingsport and the Johnson City libraries. 

Also in her research, she found that the American Library Association provides information to the public on how to combat book banning. Additionally, they have published the “Freedom to Read Statement.”

“The Freedom to Read states that it is under continuous attack in various parts of the country to remove or limit access to reading materials. They believe people that are against books want censorship and want to suppress the freedom to read,” she states. “This document is a direct threat against the Christian Morals that this country is founded upon.”

She goes on to describe that the books in question “are pornographic, highly sexualized, have alternative views by being about gay, LGBTQ, sodomites, etc.”


This grandmother warns parents to protect their children from the “indoctrination.” 

“Please be aware that even the most innocent looking children’s book can have very suggestive material in it as you continue to read.”

She concludes by noting that she has spoken with State Senator Rusty Crowe and requested that legislation be created that would protect minors from this sexualized material in public facilities.

She states that Crowe said he would be working with State Representative Rebecca Alexander to work towards the removal of inappropriate materials and greater protection of our children.

    This will not stop until they start arresting people……….but since our law enforcement
    ( pretending to uphold the law ) seems to be the Gov’t gestapo now, I won’t hold my breath. 😖

      Hey, Skrmetti since libraries accept some state funding, why are you not filing charges of child endangerment, child pornography, etc el?

        This grandmother, great grandmother, and aunt does not wants all book concerning child sex materials removed from the library. It is not mentally safe for our children or even adults to be using as educational tools. What a disgrace to our future generations. If you love your own families have this filth removed.

    We had the same bad situation in our library. Very same book as noted in this article and
    much more about transgenderism, instruction concerning sexual acts and more, in a prominent
    display at the children’s section. Each book was marked with a pink square (which meant they
    were available for the children) and a rainbow sticker. After learning of this through our city
    leadership a petition was given to many residents of our city and county to sign to request
    the librarian resign. After the petition was presented to the board she did just that.

    We have been in a fight to get books removed from Anderson county libraries for over a year. The county attorney and library boards and librarians are having none of it. They refuse to remove any books, no matter how pornographic they are. But the other pieces here are that these same books are also in school libraries. And anybody can go online and see what is in the school libraries as they are online and freely available to the public. They might not be easily searchable, but the lists are available. School boards also refuse to remove them, and teachers can reserve them for their classrooms if they do choose. Further, these books can be found online to be checked out by children in the “Tennessee Reads” program. All you have to do to find them is go to Tennessee reads website and look up the book by title. So they are available to every student in the state of Tennessee as part of the summer reading program.

    We all need to be working on legislation that EXEMPTS all education facilities from porn laws! Start at the top!
