SYDNEY (AFP) - An Australian library has found itself in the spotlight after it put up a sign declaring all books by disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong would soon be moved to the fiction section.

The notice, posted by a part-time staffer at Manly Library, read: "All non-fiction Lance Armstrong books, including 'Lance Armstrong: Images of a Champion', 'The Lance Armstrong Performance Program' and 'Lance Armstrong: The World's Greatest Champion' will soon be moved to the fiction section".

The sign, which has since been taken down, concluded with a smiley face.

Manly library's Wendy Ford said a young university student who works at the library for a few hours on weekends made the sign as a bit of fun.
