MADISON COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Parents in Madison County are expressing frustration at the county School Board.

Many say the board has violated policy by removing more than two dozen books from the school library before there could be a public comment hearing on it.

A Madison County Public Schools spokesperson has confirmed that 26 books have been removed from the library and put in a separate area.

Students can still check the books out if they have permission from their parents.

The school board is working on a new policy on “sexually-explicit” materials since Governor Glenn Youngkin signed a bill requiring school boards to adopt policies based on the state Department of Education’s model.

However, the Madison County School Board wants to ban all books from the library if they have any “sexually-explicit” content in them.

Some of the books that have already been pulled from shelves include “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “Tar Baby,” and “The Tale of the Body Thief.”
