NY Public Library Keeping Dr. Seuss Books in Circulation

 “Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you’ve ever imagined.” -Dr. Seuss

 The New York Public Library will keep six controversial Dr. Seuss books on the shelves despite this week’s decision to cease their publication due to cancel culture warriors yelling and running in a circle.

The library, which serves Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island, said it does not censor books and will keep the titles in circulation until they are no longer in suitable shape to lend out, a spokeswoman said, according to The New York Post.

“As with all public libraries the New York Public Library does not censor books,” library spokeswoman Angela Montefinise said.

“In this case, the six titles in question are being pulled out of print by Dr. Seuss Enterprises, so the very few copies we have of these titles will continue to circulate until they are no longer in acceptable condition,” Montefinise said.

As Dr. Seuss might put it, "The swarming bees tried to sting me dead but it only resulted in filling the stands of those who like to bug out their eyes and have a look for themselves."

  1. It seems Dr. Seuss caricatured all of his characters without regard to race or color.There are African people who distort their lips and pierce their noses with large, bizarre looking ornaments.
