Williamsburg Libraries Social Justice Statement

The Staff, Volunteers, Trustees, and Friends of the Williamsburg Libraries are committed to a culture of inclusion, equity, and respect. We strive to:

  • Eliminate racial, social, and accessibility barriers in library services, facilities and staffing;
  • Cultivate collections, programs, and services that highlight diverse voices with a range of life experiences;
  • Facilitate conversations and partnerships that address community challenges, broaden awareness of racial and social injustice, and engage underserved residents; and
  • Ensure that patrons, staff, and volunteers of all races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, and abilities feel welcomed and supported.
