The Mississippi Challenged Books Index collects data about challenges to library materials in Mississippi. A material challenge is when a patron requests that a book, movie, or other material be removed from a library’s collection due to its content. This information will be displayed for other libraries to view and collected into annual reports. Mississippi libraries can report this information to the Mississippi Challenged Books Index on a voluntary basis.
MCBI provides information and resources to libraries dealing with challenges. Past library challenges are posted for public use on the MCBI site, including how the library dealt with the challenge.
For more information, contact Alex Brower.
