Rapid City School Board to Vote on Destruction of 5 Book Titles

The Rapid City Area Schools Board of Education will vote Tuesday on whether to destroy five sets of library books, two of which have been challenged as inappropriate in other school districts across the country.

The school board meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers of Rapid City Hall. All five book titles are listed on the school district’s surplus list as “to be destroyed” books. The excess slate will be considered as part of the council’s consent agenda, which is normally voted on without discussion, unless a council member requests that the item be removed for separate discussion and vote.

According to the surplus list, 185 copies of “How Beautiful We Were: A Novel” by Imbolo Mbue, 35 copies of “Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic” by Alison Bechdel, 75 copies of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky, 30 copies of “Girl, Woman, Other: A Novel” by Bernardine Evaristo, and 30 copies of “The Circle” by Dave Eggers are on the list of books to be destroyed.
