Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement


Vision: Wicomico County Public Library is an inclusive, welcoming community resource that strives to meet the diverse needs of all Wicomico County citizens.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement: Wicomico Public Libraries is committed to a future that embraces diversity, equity, and racial understanding that lives through our vision statement of giving respect to all individual differences. Wicomico Public Libraries are an equitable, diverse, and inclusive community resource that strives to meet the needs of all Wicomico County citizens regardless of: age, cultural background, disability, ethnicity, family status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, health, socioeconomic status and veteran status.

“Statement without action accomplishes nothing”
We recognize that there is no “finish line”, but instead a continuous process of teaching and learning.

"Wicomico Public Libraries acknowledges that our Library branches are located on land that once belonged to the Algonquin people.”

By adopting this statement, Wicomico County Public Library staff and the Board of Trustees pledge to engage in opportunities for equity, diversity and inclusion through all levels of our organization.
