Guiding Principles

Intellectual Freedom

We are committed to the free and open exchange of ideas.  We facilitate your access to information free of judgment.

“Having the freedom to read and the freedom to choose is one of the best gifts my parents ever gave me.”  — Judy Blume

Privacy

We protect your information and your right to privacy.

“Privacy is essential to the exercise of free speech, free thought, and free association. Lack of privacy and confidentiality chills people’s choices, thereby suppressing access to ideas.”  – American Library Association

“We contribute to a more just society in which all community members can realize their full potential.”
–Urban Libraries Council
