Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging, and Equity (IDBE)
We commit to creating a more diverse and inclusive organization through our recruitment, promotion, and retention processes as well as through our collection and description practices. We strive for equity in our users’ experiences across our services, spaces, and technology. We foster community and a sense of belonging through inclusive programming and multiple opportunities to participate in the life of the library.
We aim to build a structured communication plan that informs our user communities of our expansive collections, one-of-a-kind programming, and multifaceted support services. We promote a bold events program that inspires and empowers community engagement.
We actively participate in ongoing processes of assessment. We strive to be an organization that thoughtfully collects and uses data to influence holistic and strategic decision making.
