Material Selection Policy in Marshall, Missouri Approved by Committee

The Marshall Democrat-News reports that the committee established to put together a new selection policy for the Marshall, Missouri library after last Fall the graphic novels Blankets (Craig Thompson) and Fun Home (Alison Bechdel) were pulled from shelves following a complaint about their content. The report goes to the library board this Wednesday. I must have missed the the article about what's in the policy, although clues last week pointed to at least their being a way material would stay on the shelves while being reviewed, and a librarian review and report back to the complaining party before an objection would go to the board.
