Woman won't return pornographic children's book to public library

Put her in jail? Admire her?

JoAn Karkos was "horrified" by the contents of It's Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex & Sexual Health. Instead of burning the books, which she describes as "pornographic," the Maine mother borrowed copies from two local libraries and refused to bring them back.

"Since I have been sufficiently horrified of the illustrations and the sexually graphic, amoral abnormal contents, I will not be returning the books," Karkos wrote in a letter the Lewiston and Auburn public libraries last month, according to the Associated Press. She enclosed a check for the MSRP of the book.

The librarians are threatening to call in the cops. "It is clearly theft," one librarian tells the Sun Journal.
