Official Statement from the Connecticut Library Association – June 5, 2020

The Connecticut Library Association condemns racism and injustice and is deeply saddened by the recent events in our country. We stand with the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA), all our colleagues and library users who are subject to acts of racism, threats of violence and discrimination based on their race or ethnicity.

Libraries, by nature of their definition, are bastions of equal treatment, equal access and hope. I’m proud of Connecticut libraries as we serve our communities through these difficult times.  We’re actively providing resources, and safe virtual spaces for those wishing to educate themselves, as well as supporting those who depend on us. Racism in all its forms destroys communities. Let’s continue to stand together to support those who need us most.

Lisa Karim
CLA President
