The American Library Association has stated that “ALA believes that the struggle against racism, prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination is central to our mission.” We at the San Rafael Public Library mirror that commitment to inclusion of all members of our community.
Your library is here for you, whoever you are. Come on by. We’re here for you.
Evaluating our information sources and being more conscious of where we get our news is a topic on many people’s minds these days. Regardless of one’s political leanings, we all want to know that the news we get is accurate, well-researched, and as unbiased as possible. The San Rafael Public Library’s youth services staff has created a guide for parents and caregivers to teach children and teens about information literacy, internet safety, and how to spot fake news. We have a feeling adults will find it useful as well!
