Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


Banned from an Erie (IL) elementary school’s shelves because of a line that reads, “some families have two moms or two dads.” The district also banned anything furnished by GLSEM (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network), including learning materials and various programs aimed at preventing bullying.
