Oconee County Library Board Votes To Move To Adult Classification Two Books Citizens Said Were Objectionable Due To Sexual Content

***Board Also Sets Date For Closing Of Existing Library***

The Oconee County Library Board of Trustees on Monday granted two of five requests by citizens to reclassify books available through the Oconee County Library in Watkinsville.

The citizens said they objected to the explicit, sexual content of the books. Four of the five books deal with LGBTQ+ issues. The fifth is focused on issues of consent.
