Parents will have to give consent for students to check out some books at Middlebury Community Schools that are deemed to contain contain illicit material.

The change comes after parent Pam Keyser filed a complaint about a few books she said contained “inappropriate materials including pornography, profanity and racism” at the Northridge middle and high school libraries, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.

The books are “Out of the Darkness” by Ashley Hope Perez, “Everybody Sees the Ants” by A.S. King and “The Infinite Moment of Us” by Lauren Myracle.

The Elkhart Truth reports Keyser is still not happy with the board’s decision.

Keyser is the leader of the Northridge Area Parents Association, is lobbying state senators for the passage of Senate Bill 17, which ends the exemption loophole protections allowing public schools and libraries to offer illicit materials to minors.

If it requires parental consent it shouldn’t be there in the first place.
