Librarian Reverses Board’s Decision To Put Neonomicon Back On The Shelves

Last year, Alan Moore and Jacen BurrowsNeonomicon was withdrawn from a library in Greenville after a teenage girl using an adult library card took it out and her mother strenuously objected.

Later the library board all read the graphic novel and voted for it to be returned to the shelves. End of? No.

The Head Librarian reverted the board’s decision to revert her decision and took the book back off the shelves again. Talking to local press, she said;

“It was disgusting,” she said, declining to label it obscene or pornographic.

She acknowledged the library has many books that deal in such detail with the very same subject matter — racism, rape, murder, sex — but for her, the pictures gave her pause.

Her decision to pull the book was the first time she had overruled her staff’s recommendation and the fifth time she had removed material from the library after a complaint.

“I call it de-selection,” she said.
