The New York Public Library will keep six controversial Dr. Seuss books on the shelves despite the decision earlier this week by Dr. Seuss Enterprises to pull the books out of print due to racist imagery.
According to a library spokeswoman, it does not censor books, and says they will be kept in circulation until they are no longer in suitable shape to be lent out.
She says the Seuss books are also in the historical research collection at the library.
The library serves Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island.
