Rye Public Library Diversity Statement

Libraries are places of opportunity–where all people can develop, grow, and contribute. As a trusted and enduring institution, the Rye Public Library aspires to be an essential participant in progress towards social equity. We recognize that the well-being of our library and our community depends on the participation of EVERY person. RPL actively affirms the dignity of those it serves and is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination for all, including but not limited to: heritage, citizenship, education, race, socioeconomic and housing status, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, abilities, political affiliations, familial status, or military/veteran status. We are committed to making diversity and inclusion a priority in decision making for collections, services, and organizational change. Our goal is to create an inclusive, welcoming, and respectful organization that appreciates and supports individual differences, while also providing access to information to allow our community to learn and grow together
