Re-ordering the paragraphs makes sense and strengthens the document.

Adding "American Library Association's" in front of "Library Bill of Rights" is inconsistent with the other interpretations.  

I prefer "American Library Association's Library Bill of Rights" because access to the interpretations may be without context and done by people who are not familiar with ALA or the values of libraries and librarians.  I believe it makes the document more quotable, too.

If the choice is to include the phrase, please consider adding it to the other interpretations.

We'll look into this.  We're generally in favor of consistency whenever possible across docs.

Thanks again,
