PASCAGOULA -- A south Mississippi library has reversed its decision and returned a controversial book to its shelves.

After Robert Willits, director of the Jackson-George Regional Library System, banned Jon Stewart's best selling "America (The Book)" last month, public sentiment caused the library's board of directors to change its mind. Board Chairman Ables said the library has received "a lot of calls and e-mails" on the subject and the majority were opposed to the library's decision to ban the book.
