2020 Vision: BIPOC Engagement in Seattle
In 2019, we embarked on an intensive community listening project with BIPOC communities.
Working with the City of Seattle, we promote digital equity through our programs and services.
Equity Work at the Library
We actively commit our programs and resources to help eliminate institutional racism.
We are strongly committed to intellectual freedom, one of our guiding principles and the cornerstone of all public libraries.
The Library is a place for everyone, including people of all gender identities. We work with local organizations and community members to offer programming for LGBTQ+ patrons and allies.
Race & Social Justice
We participate in the Mayor’s Race and Social Justice Initiative to promote and support racial equity in our workplace.
