ce, a book is introduced to the learning curriculum of a school system, then such a book must have passed the set limits of acceptability (Anderson, 19). This paper will thus address in details the reasons as to why some communities, libraries and schools opt to ban materials. This is to say that the paper will give principles as to why there are merits and demerits of banning materials for the said schools, public libraries and communities.
