A Texas school district has removed the Bible and an illustrated adaptation of Anne Frank's diary from libraries.
News outlets including CNN report that books challenged through the district's formal complaint process in the past school year are being taken off the shelves for review.
This is part of a new policy, approved by the Keller Independent School District Board of Trustees on August 8, that also subjects possible book purchases to a thirty-day public review process.
That policy was emailed to principals, and then made their way to the media.
After the Texas Tribune reported on the email, the district issued a statement saying, in part: "Books that meet the new guidelines will be returned to the libraries as soon as it is confirmed they comply with the new policy."
