    Library Book Review Process

    The books on the lists below are those that have been identified as not suitable for school children.
    Please take time to look at them and submit the Request for Reconsideration of Library Resource to have the books removed or moved to an adult section of the library.

    Request for Reconsideration of Library Resource

  • List of books (pdf file)
  • List of books (excel spreadsheet)
  • The book list comes from the Book Looks website which rates books from 0-5 as to just how obscene they are according to their rubric.

    The books were cross referenced by Johnnelle Raines to make sure these books are actually in our Pickens County Library.

    One book has been challenged twice...most have not been challenged to her knowledge. It is important that people let her know if they have turned in a challenge as she is keeping up with which ones have been challenged and when, as well as The Director's Decision and the Appeals Decision.

    It is fine to challenge a book that has already been challenged...it just shows that book has great concerns in our community.

    The rated 5 ones definitely need a challenge...then rated 4 ones.

    We must keep the pressure on the Director and the Board on these challenges...overwhelm them.

    We must also keep pressure on the county council and those who are running against present county councilmen. The county council CAN make an ordinance...it is a power they have according to the SC Laws on County's Library regardless of what the Librarians say... the library building BELONGS to the county and the taxpayers... they can and should not re-appoint board members who are fine with filth being available to minors. Not to mention pressure to hire a new library director who is not "woke" and all on board with this filth being available to minors. It doesn't matter if SC Law says they are exempt...they shouldn't be purchasing books like this. Praying the exemption gets taken away from them by Columbia Legislators...but until then we need to keep the pressure on.
