Talking about Race, Ethnicity, and Racism

Race and Social Equity

Bellingham Public Library stands with the Urban Libraries Council Statement on Race and Social Equity.

We acknowledge that we gather on territory that has been the traditional and ancestral homeland to the Lhaq’temish (Lummi people), the Nooksack people, and other Coast Salish tribes of this region Since Time Immemorial.

We honor our shared responsibility to this land and these waters, we commit to learning from indigenous wisdom, and we strive to repair and deepen our relationships as neighbors and friends.

Community Voices Kits

Community Voices Book Kits center and celebrate diverse voices and experiences in our community. These kits, curated by the Bellingham Public Library children’s staff will provide stories, conversation opportunities and resources for families that help bridge learning, understanding and connection with each other.

Resources for education and discussion.
