School Library Books 📚
Public school libraries have little to no oversight in the books that sit on their shelves.
Activist organizations preyed on this lack of oversight and have successfully injected books containing anti-American, pro-Marxist ideology, books that promote racial division, books depicting scenes of pornographic acts, and even including pedophilia.
After recent discoveries of inappropriate books found in various school districts across the nation, many parents have been asking how they can see what books are being made available to their children.
By using Destiny Discover by Follet Software1 you can search the online book catalog of a specific school. (For Brandywine School District, it only works when searching individual schools within the district - a district wide search yields an error page)
Parents of Carmel School District compiled this list of books which are a cause for concern:
As time has gone on, parents have become more organized. Hundreds of parents have been taking on the task of reading these books found to be obscene & sexual in nature. A rating system has been developed to help parents recognize the content of the books in their children’s school libraries. Some school districts have adopted this rating system.
“Education is not merely neglected in many of our schools today, but is replaced to a great extent by ideological indoctrination.”

This list is by no means complete, as new inappropriate books are still being discovered and added.
Be mindful of "Classroom Libraries". They contain books that can be read, but can not be checked out and brought home. This in and of itself is not always a cause for concern, but for a teacher with anti-American woke values - or lack thereof - this can be extremely detrimental to any students. Teachers have near 100% control of which books are brought into the classroom. While we do respect the teachers’ freedom to use the resources that they feel can best teach the students, we are concerned about what they teach the students.
Whenever you have the opportunity, look at what books are on the classroom bookshelves. Do not be hesitant to ask your child's teacher what books are being read. In fact, it is encouraged and we would expect any well intentioned teacher would welcome the parent's involvement in their child's education.
This is not about censorship. There is an appropriate place for every book, be it a public library, or an adult section of a bookstore. K-12 school libraries are not that place!
