If I'm asked how I'll handle a parent who is upset about certain materials being available in the library, perhaps I'll quote from this article

I wish kids were sneaking into the library, of all places, to get their hands on edgy sh*t that would freak their parents out. The reality is that kids can get shocking material much more easily on the Internet, and books are so uncool in comparison (with, I suppose, a few vampiric exceptions) that parents who think the printed word will destroy their children's innocence are looking in the wrong place. Banning books in 2010 feels like banning Brussels sprouts — which, come to think of it, may be a good idea. I hope Wentworth's objections are actually a master plan of reverse psychology — but I fear they're just a misguided attempt to control her kids' brains.
