In Westminster, Maryland, the superintendent of the Carroll County Public School District has temporarily removed over 50 challenged books from school libraries. This was done in compliance with district policy, which states that books can be removed from the school’s media collection pending adjudication of challenges.

The National Coalition Against Censorship has written to the district administration to urge them to revise their policies. A policy allowing the removal of challenged books while they are under review, is counterproductive.
