Abstract

Parental challenge that "Night Chills" contained graphic sexual scenes and was inappropriate for a high school book report. The Board will decide whether to keep the book in the library at their Oct. 27th meeting. Linda Pietila, the head librarian at Mountain View, prefers that parents make choices for their own children but not prevent other students from having access.
