Today we honor the National Day of Racial Healing to forward collective action to create a more equitable world. The National Day of Racial Healing was created in 2017 by more than 500 leaders around the United States.
There have been so many events in the last year alone to know that there is a lot of work to do. We recognize the racial injustice and disparities experienced by our community every day, which drives us to be of service.

However, we know that the work is more than supplying resources to the community. The Library’s Board and Staff continues our work to become a more equitable place for everyone in our community by taking a closer look at our services, programs, and collection. We are committed to learn, grow, and evolve to provide a public library that is relevant to its patrons.
We are doing this by participating in education with experts, discussion, and looking to organizations around the US who are making a difference in their community.
We are providing a virtual gather for families to join us for a storytime on Tuesday, January 19 at 10:30 am on Facebook featuring Stories to Share for Tough Times.
We wish more than anything that we could be fully open to all services and be able to provide a meaningful in-person experience to mark this day.
However, we are happy to be able to meet the essential needs of the community during a pandemic through computer appointments, copying and scanning services, vestibule pick up of library materials, reference services, and a variety of virtual services.
