Boston Public Library Gets Proactive on Becoming Anti-Racist

Gary Price reports for INFOdocket that the board of trustees of the Boston Public Library (BPL), per The Boston Globe (registration required), “unanimously ratified an action plan to make the library an antiracist organization.” The plan, titled Racial Equity Commitment & Action Plan, “outlines the steps that will be taken, including reviewing the library’s hiring and recruitment strategies and acquisition policies.”

The library’s statement notes, “The Library is currently reviewing its acquisition policy to ensure the BPL’s collections are developed with an intentional focus on raising the voices of people of color through representation, inclusivity, and diversity. In support of this effort, the Boston Public Library Fund (BPLF)—the primary philanthropic arm of the BPL—recently received an anonymous $75,000 grant to support expanded access to the BPL’s Antiracist reading list.”
