A Letter to our Community
On this Juneteenth day, the Morgantown Public Library System stands in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement and we support the efforts to end systemic racism in our communities.
We reaffirm our commitment to serve all residents of Monongalia County as the focal point of the community and we strive to meet your recreational, cultural, and educational needs. Our mission is to educate, serve, and encourage without discrimination, through free and open access to information and resources.
The Morgantown Public Library System is built for all. We strive as an organization to listen, learn, and grow so that we can do better:
- The library’s collections are specially curated to provide rich and varied titles that represent our multiracial and multicultural community.
- The library partners with local organizations and social services to learn about and address homelessness, racism, and economic disparity.
- The library is designed to be a safe gathering space for anyone in the community.
We encourage you to do what we do best–to read. We will continue to share lists of recommended books to start those difficult but important discussions. As this is an ongoing learning experience for all of us, we invite you to share resources, programs, or suggested additions to our collections. As always, you can reach us at email@example.com or (304) 291-7425.
