Equity and Inclusion Policy

Cranston Public Library deeply values equity of access to information and resources and the pursuit of intellectual freedom for all patrons. In support of these principles, we welcome all members of the community and seek to provide a safe and inclusive space for all visitors, regardless of race or color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, actual or perceived gender identity or expression, disability, age, national or ethnic origin, or socio-economic status.


As such, Cranston Public Library upholds the rights of all individuals to use its facilities without fear of harassment or intimidation, and supports an individual’s right to use the public restroom that corresponds with their gender identity or expression.
