Before reading, note the statement is carefully worded. You will not find the book back on the teen shelves until the board has voted on it.

Here is the full statement:

“Upon reviewing the page(s) of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ book that was the basis of the Director’s and review staff’s reason to move the book out of the Teen section,  I believe there was an error in implementing the Collection Development Policy and that this book should be moved back to the Teen section immediately.  The Board of Trustees will discuss further what went wrong with the review process at the next public board meeting.”
