Abstract

Children’s Librarian Judy Harold accepted a copy of “Daddy’s Roommate,” one of three books donated to the library, based on its artistic and educational merit. “Daddy’s Roommate” and “Heather Has Two Mommies” have been singled out by the Oregon Citizens Alliance as promoting homosexuality which is prohibited by the recent City Charter amendment. The books were donated by the Oregonians United Together and Traditional Family Values Coalition to test the new law.
