NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription key must be present in Info.plist to use camera roll

Recently I started to get this error: "NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription key must be present in Info.plist to use camera roll."

I am using React Native to build my app (I am not familiar with ios native development) and I don't know how to add this key to Info.plist

Can you post an example? Thanks

I am using npm package "react-native-camera-roll-picker": "^1.1.7"

Thanks @rmaddy, I added this just after other key-string pairs in Info.plist and fixed the problem:

<key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key>
<string>Photo Library Access Warning</string>

Edit:

I also ended up having similar problems on different components of my app. Ended up adding all these keys so far (after updating to Xcode8/iOS10):

<key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key>
<string>This app requires access to the photo library.</string>
<key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key>
<string>This app does not require access to the microphone.</string>
<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>This app requires access to the camera.</string>
