BOROUGH PARK - Parents are outraged over the access children have to erotic books at Brooklyn Public Library.
Assemblyman Dov Hikind has joined concerned mothers of Borough Park in their expression of disapproval and disgust over access to erotic books in their public libraries.
Hikind and parents say they’re not suggesting that adult books be removed from shelves, but they want the books put in a separate room away from the children’s books.
A spokesperson for Brooklyn Public Library says it follows American Library Association guidelines, which oppose restriction on access to services, material and facilities.
The library says it is committed to ensuring young patrons only have access to age-appropriate materials. Young children under 13 must have parental approval to access any books other than juvenile materials.
