Arlington Public Library is committed to being a welcoming place that accepts all comers regardless of backgrounds, beliefs, origin, income status, and appearance.
We will be here for you.
We will embrace inclusion and diverse points of view.
We will inspire, tickle your passion, and quench your thirst to know.
We will encourage you to ask why and why not?
We will be a wellspring for ideas, for conversation, for disagreement, for enlightenment.
We will educate and provoke.
We will create opportunities for increased understanding: of our world, of our community and of each other.
We will honor truth and fairness, social justice and compassion.
We will stand up for each other and ask that bullies stand down.
We do all of this with good will and humor and kindness; through books and community programs; within our walls and outside in the community.
We are happy that you are here.
