Library Statement on Antiracism

The Palomar College Library staff and faculty stands in solidarity in condemning violence and racism toward Black people, Indigenous people, Latinx people and all People of Color!  We declare that there is no room for racism or Xenophobia in our community.

We take responsibility for challenging racial inequity and implementing positive change in the Library. As part of our commitment to accountability, we apply an antiracist analysis  as we evaluate the services, policies, spaces, and collections that we offer to students, faculty, staff, administrators and to the wider community.

The Library partners with Palomar colleagues, students, and the community to create unique displays and programs that confront racially oppressive systems and attitudes. This is part of our work to make the Library welcoming to all learners.

We invite you to join our efforts for antiracist reform by making suggestions for resources, services, and programs.  Our collaborative efforts will ensure that the library is responsive and proactive.

Please share your suggestions  and we will respond as quickly as possible.
