BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Republican lawmakers are forming a working group to study allegations that Idaho libraries are making explicit materials available to minors.
The Idaho Press reports the Senate Republicans announced the plans for a working group over the weekend.
The group will include eight lawmakers and representatives from the Idaho Commission for Libraries and the Idaho Library Association.
The allegations came from some right-wing lawmakers who objected to what they said was pornographic material.
They cited examples that came mostly from the adult section of libraries as well as some teen memoirs and a sex education book made available to kids over age 10.
