Library keeping Dr. Seuss titles being pulled from publishing

The Algoma Public Library will continue lending out six Dr. Seuss book titles that will no longer be published due to the unfavorable representation of some characters' ethnicities.  Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced it's ceasing publication of those books after a team of educators found some portrayals to be “hurtful and wrong.”  Library Director Cathy Kolbeck says library officials have discussed the titles in question, which will remain, although there are procedures for dealing with the concerns of library patrons.

The Kewaunee Public Library says it will also address any library patrons' concern about materials that are in circulation on a case-by-case basis. The Door County Library declined to offer comment for this story. Among the six Dr. Seuss titles that will no longer be published are “And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “If I Ran the Zoo”.
