Nebraska elementary school library lends Spider-Man graphic novel to six-year old
Yeah, you better look over your shoulder, Spidey.
KETV, an Omaha, Nebraska TV station, recently aired a story about the mother of a 6-year-old boy who brought home a copy of a Spider-Man graphic novel from his elementary school in Millard
Physha Svendsen, the mother of the boy at the center of this dispute, contends that the book is not age appropriate for elementary school students and wants it removed from the school library. Donna Helvering, the school district’s head librarian, said that the school will form a committee to evaluate the complaint within 30 days and the committee will decide whether to keep the book on the school’s library shelves or not.
