Two books with graphic sexual illustrations were restored to Nampa Public Library shelves Monday in response to a threatened lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union.
The ACLU sent the Nampa Library Board a letter last week saying it would sue unless the board reversed its June decision to permanently banish "The Joy of Gay Sex" and "The New Joy of Sex" to the library director's office, where only those who specifically requested the books could see them. In response, the five-member library board held a special meeting Friday and unanimously voted to put the books back on the shelves, library Community Relations Coordinator Dan Black said.
