The books I've found hidden behind the other books are ones by Ann Coulter and the like.

Subject: Re: [MELIBS-L] My first book challenge

We've never received a request to remove the book, but it is often found behind the bookcase, in the wrong place on the shelves, or hidden between furniture. This was also the case when we had "Heather has Two Mommies" and "Daddy's Roommate." It's a lovely passive aggressive way to deny people's access to the book. *sigh*

But good for you and your trustees for having those policies in place!
