Libraries are essential pillars of our democracy: they make us better citizens
by providing free and equal access to information, resources, and ideas.
Libraries are also central pillars of our humanity: they offer the chance to
explore the lives of others, their varied perspectives, and unique sufferings.

We are committed to serving as a safe space for people to connect, learn, and
grow with and from one another.  Systemic racism, prejudice, and discrimination are counter to our mission and values, and we reject them in all their forms. We stand with library workers, with library users, and with members of the community we serve and support who have been mistreated, endangered, or threatened, simply for being who they are
