We welcome the decision by the National Library Board (NLB) not to pulp the two children’s books, “And Tango Makes Three” and “The White Swan Express.” These books are published in the U.S. and written by U.S. authors.

The U.S. is strongly committed to upholding universal values of human rights and fundamental freedoms. These include freedom of access to knowledge, which lies at the heart of a successful democracy, and is key in creating an informed and dynamic citizenry.

We also believe in promoting tolerance and mutual respect, which are critical to an inclusive society that celebrates diversity. – KW
