Resources on Race

RESOURCES ON RACE

Black Lives Matter.

Saint Paul Public Library joins the Urban Libraries Council in standing with all who are calling for immediate, collective action to end systemic racism that causes inequity in our communities.

Libraries are an essential part of our social infrastructure. Libraries, like all other areas of government, have been built on a foundation of systemic racism.

At Saint Paul Public Library, we offer resources for learning, connection, healing, and transformation. We also affirm our commitment to continue dismantling practices embedded in our system that contribute to inequity.

Our SPPL vision, co-created with community, includes, "We imagine a Saint Paul where all people feel seen, safe, and welcome." We are here with our community to help make that vision true.
