Five books deemed inappropriate by a local pastor have been removed from the Clyde-Savannah Central School District’s Junior/Senior High School Library.
The Finger Lakes Times reported the decision on Thursday, August 17, after Jacob Marchitell, pastor of Christ Community Church in Clyde, expressed concerns about the content of the books to the board.
Last week, the Board of Education voted 5-3 against a measure supporting the retention of the disputed books in the library.
Officials acknowledged the board’s decision might not resonate with everyone.
