The Arlington Heights Memorial Library is dedicated to fostering an inclusive and diverse environment. This commitment is infused through our guiding documents, including the library’s Mission, Vision and Values statements, Strategic Plan, Our Culture, employee and public policies, the American Library Association Library Bill of Rights, and most recently, the library’s statement on Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (below):
Inclusion: The library welcomes and values everyone.
Diversity: The library recognizes and embraces the range of human similarities and differences.
Equity: The library recognizes every person has different circumstances and needs; we strive to support fair outcomes.
Accessibility: The library designs its services and environment to be usable by people of all abilities.
