Lance Armstrong's cycling career has been, in his own words, "one big lie" -- and that's causing some unexpected problems for libraries.

The formerly acclaimed cyclist's confession to Oprah that he used performance-enhancing drugs is giving some librarians headaches, as they now are tasked with deciding where to place the many books written about Armstrong's victories. The librarians of Manly Library in Sydney, Australia think they have an answer.

The library recategorized these books as fiction and left a sign explaining the changes, the Daily News reports.

"All non-fiction Lance Armstrong titles, including Lance Armstrong: Images Of A Champion, The Lance Armstrong Performance Program and Lance Armstrong: World's Greatest Champion, will soon be moved to the fiction section," the sign reads.
