Students at The Keller Independent School District (ISD) in Texas, US, will no longer be able to find the Bible and a version of Anne Frank's dairy in their classrooms and libraries.
It's after the school district decided to temporarily remove all copies of the books along with 40 other titles as parents and community members deemed the books "inappropriate for schools".
"By the end of today, I need all books pulled from the library and classrooms," an email from district curriculum director Jennifer Price said.
"More information will be sent regarding action for these books...Once this has been completed, please email me a confirmation. We need to ensure this action is taken by the end of today."
Under a new district policy, all books that have been challenged by community members "are required to be removed from shelves and held in a Parental Consent Area until the challenge process is complete".
It's understood some of the other books are themed around racial issues or the LGBT community, such as Toni Morrison's "The Bluest Eye".
The district has not released any timeline of when the process will be completed.
In a statement, superintendent of Keller ISD Dr Rick Westfall said: "I would like to remind everyone that the list of challenged books was not created by Keller ISD or any Keller ISD employee, but by parents and community members."
"If the books pass the new standards, as determined by reviews conducted in coordination with campus administration and librarians, the books will be promptly returned to shelves."
