(Topeka, KS)--The Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library will not be restricting access of four sexually-themed books. The board voted 7-to-3 Thursday to leave the books on the shelves.

The board will be putting a public statement on their web site. That statement will describe the controversy over the books, and explain why parents need to keep an eye on their kids, even at the library.

Proponents of restricting access to the books were upset by the decision, and it remains to be seen if they decide to attempt any kind of legal action.

Supporters of keeping the books on the shelves were pleased with the final solution, and they say parents ultimately have the final say on what their children are reading and looking at.
