A message from the Board President
As a public library, our purpose is to provide a place where all are welcome and treated with dignity and respect. We reject discrimination in all its forms and are deeply heartbroken over the death of George Floyd and all others who have suffered and died as the result of violence and racism. We support the BCALA – The Black Caucus of the American Library Association’s Statement Condemning Increased Violence and Racism Towards Black Americans and People of Color and uphold the civil rights and First Amendment freedoms of all people.
Racism and hate have no place in our community. We seek to work with others to build a resilient community that expresses a deep concern for the well-being of every person. We remain committed to action that is rooted in equity and respect for human dignity.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and be well.
