TPL Stands Against Racism and White Supremacy

Tacoma Public Library is opposed to white supremacy in all of its forms and is committed to fostering an organization that is actively anti-racist.

We believe that Black Lives Matter.

We are grieving with our black community and all communities of color who continue to be harmed by institutionalized racism.

We are committed to being a trusted community resource available to all and will provide resources and public programs that seek to reflect the values of anti-racism and elevate the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
