Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.
Challenged at the Austin Memorial Library in Cleveland (TX), along with other young adult books that have a vampire theme. A Local minister requested that the “Occultic (sic) and demonic room be shut down, and these books be purged from the shelves, and that public funds would no longer be used to purchase such material, or at least require parents to check them out for their children.”
Banned at Henderson Junior High School in the Stephenville (TX) Independent School District. The entire teen vampire series was banned for sexual content and nudity. Since the series has not been completed, “Stephenville ISD actually banned books that have not yet been published and perhaps even books that have yet to be written. There is no way the district could know the content of these books, and yet they have been banned.”
