A suburban Detroit library has decried an unidentified censor who concealed DVDs of movies from the racy "Fifty Shade" series.

The Berkley library is now openly displaying the R-rated movies, accompanied by a sign that says hiding movies "is not how libraries work."

Librarian Lauren Arnsman tells the  Detroit Free Press  that the three movies had mysteriously disappeared since last year, forcing the library to spend more than $100 to replace them. Most were found hidden in the building.

They're now on a table, along with the movies "Jerusalem" and "Eyes Wide Shut," which also had disappeared.

The library doesn't know who was hiding the DVDs. The "Fifty Shades" books? They're still on the shelf.
