Statement on Racism and Social Injustice

As we face some of the most difficult challenges we have ever seen, The Field Library affirms its commitment to champion diversity, inclusion, equity, and open access to information. We stand with the New York Library Association (NYLA) and the New York Black Librarians Caucus (NYBLC), echo the sentiments of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA), Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) and the American Library Association (ALA), in their condemnation of violence and racism toward Black people, Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities, and all People of Color.

The Field Library is a place that welcomes all and does not and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender expression, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in its collections, activities, operations, and programs.
