And the "secure section"... Republic High School's library is a go.


So now, whenever a book is formally challenged, the school can avoid accusations of censorship by simply locking the book up!



At the moment (as far as I can tell), the Secure Section will only house two books: Slaughterhouse Five and Twenty Boy Summer.

But I have no doubt that they will rapidly be joined by OTHER books that one or two people find offensive.

Whatever will be next??

Relatedly, I find it unfortunate that the Reuters headline on this story reads "Missouri local school board ends ban on Slaughterhouse Five", which is more than a little misleading.
