New York Public Library Won't Cancel Dr. Seuss Books Despite Racist Imagery

New York Public Library Won't Cancel Dr. Seuss Books Despite Racist Imagery

By    |   Thursday, 04 March 2021 04:34 PM

The New York Public Library says it wont remove six Dr. Seuss books from its shelves despite uproar over racist and insensitive imagery, reports Fox News.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the business that preserves and protects the authors legacy, said Tuesday it would stop publishing six books, including ''And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street'' and ''If I Ran the Zoo,'' because they ''portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.''

''Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises catalog represents and supports all communities and families,'' it said.

The NYPL says is has a duty to ''ensure accurate and diverse'' collections.

"As public libraries do not censor material, the very few copies we have of the 6 Dr. Seuss titles in question will remain in circulation until they are no longer in acceptable condition," a spokesperson for the NYPL told Fox News. "At that point, we will not be able to replace them, as the books are out of print.

"In the meantime, librarians, who care deeply about serving their communities and ensuring accurate and diverse representation in our collections — especially childrens books — will certainly strongly consider this information when planning story times, displays, and recommendations," the spokesperson added.
