Big news in Fayetteville.


FAYETTEVILLE -- The Fayetteville School Board rescinded its earlier action to restrict access to three challenged library books and authorized the creation of a committee to review the district's book selection policy during a special meeting Thursday.

In a 4-3 vote, the board took back its action in May that placed "It's Perfectly Normal," "It's So Amazing" and "A Teenage Guy's Guide to Survival" on restricted shelves in parent libraries in the schools where the books are housed.

The action means the three books will be returned to general circulation shelves with some limits on student access, based on a review committee's recommendations.


After the meeting, Taylor said she had "no idea what just happened. There was no decision about a single book. It's frustrating."
