About the Library

Mission and Diversity Statements

Mission Statement:
The Reading Public Library will generate a library for the future by meeting the informational, educational, and recreational needs of library consumers today.

Diversity Statement:
We are committed to fostering an inclusive culture that celebrates and respects our differences and unique learning styles.

We do not support political agendas but we do support our black staff and our community members of color.

We actively build community by encouraging honest dialogue, empathy, and courageous communication.*
