NLB changes logo to reflect their profound sense of sadness

Following the public backlash against the National Library Board the past week by Singapore’s writers and sound-minded people, the NLB has announced that it will be changing its logo to reflect the organisation’s profound sense of sadness over the matter as well.

The logo, which was unveiled at the National Library, comprises two semicolons separated by an underscore symbol.

The semicolons symbolise the community norms the NLB is charged with upholding, and the underscore represents the safe space where pro-family values can be propagated.

When asked about the reason for the logo change, Tu Shu Guan, spokesperson for the NLB, said: “It’s sad, so sad. In fact, I’d go so far to say that it’s a sad, sad, situation, and that it’s getting more and more absurd.”

“However, we remain committed to our stand, and we will not be apologising for pulping the non-pro-family books.”
