Libraries asked to pull Bill Cosby's books after sex assault charges

As Bill Cosby's legacy continues to spiral, his Little Bill children's book series landed on a list of the 10 books Americans most often asked librarians to remove from shelves last year after he faced sex assault charges.
    
The Little Bill series was the subject of some of the 323 challenges to books reported to the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom.
    
The once-heralded children's series includes three titles selected by Oprah Winfrey for her influential book club, including The Meanest Thing to Say, The Treasure Hunt and The Best Way to Play.
    
Another Cosby book, his autobiography Childhood, is the subject of a court battle in his case, with prosecutors seeking to introduce as evidence excerpts which they say show his willingness to use intoxicants to incapacitate women before assaulting them.
