‘Banned books’ to be returned to library shelves

“Several hundred books that were pulled from the shelves of the Gadsden Public Library and the Austin Meadows Library at Gadsden State Community College will be returned to their rightful place as the libraries observe “Banned Books Week,” which begins Monday. The books removed at the Gadsden Public Library were replaced on the shelves with notification that the work was a “banned book.” The books were placed on shelves with caution tape covering them. Library Director Amanda Jackson said she was disappointed there wasn’t more of a response to the books being pulled, but she believes the library made its point.” (via GadsdenTimes.com)
