Mission Statement

The mission of the Waterloo Public Library is to provide free access to information, education 

and recreation in a welcoming environment.

Diversity, inclusion, and belonging are core values of our organization, and we condemn racism, xenophobia, violence, hatred, intolerance, and prejudice of any kind. We respect all people’s rights, dignity, and feelings and strive to recognize the burdens and barriers Black, Indigenous, and people of color, in particular, face. 

Through our mission, we aim to provide the highest level of service to all of our patrons through diversity and inclusion-informed decision-making in our planning, policies, programming, and collections. We are committed to learning and working with community partners, addressing our communities’ needs, and providing equitable access, inclusion, and belonging.
 

Sincerely,
Waterloo Public Library
