ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida mother has returned several library books after keeping them two years because she felt they were too racy for teens.
Tina Harden says the series by Cecily von Ziegesar, which spawned the popular "Gossip Girl" TV show, contains inappropriate sex and drug references.
A man donated replacement books to the library and others planned to send checks or books.
Harden has incurred $85 in fines ignoring calls from the Seminole County Library and bill collectors since her daughter checked out the books.
Harden says she's done her part and it's now up to the library to restrict children from books with inappropriate material.
The library reshelved the books in its adult section, but says it would be censorship to ban them.
