The Tippecanoe County Public Library believes that all people in the community should be encouraged to use the public library and that the library should be prepared to meet their needs. The Library also believes that all people in our community need to understand and appreciate the varying culture of people who live in Indiana. To that end, the Tippecanoe County Public Library endorses the following principles:

 

The Tippecanoe County Public Library will recruit, hire, and advance ethnic staff to reflect the ethnic make-up of our community.

The Tippecanoe County Public Library Board, staff, and volunteers will treat members of ethnic groups with sensitivity, courtesy, and respect.

The Tippecanoe County Public Library will offer services designed with the ethnic populations in its community in mind.


The collection of the Tippecanoe County Public Library will contain a wide variety of materials by, about, and in the language of the community's ethnic populations.


The Tippecanoe County Public Library will celebrate the heritage and culture of Indiana's ethnic population.


The Tippecanoe County Public Library will develop partnerships with community groups to better serve ethnic populations.

Adopted by the Library Board of Trustees December 1, 1998
