6.22.23 Pride and Juneteenth

Hello Friends

June is a month for inclusion, recognition and celebration, hosting both Juneteenth and Pride Month. Both of these celebrations encourage us to look back at our history as individuals and as a community; to appreciate how far we’ve come, where we need to go, and what part we play in helping each other thrive. I want to take this moment to cite Skidompha’s Mission and Values Statement:

Skidompha Library’s mission is to support and enrich our community by fostering literacy, providing ready access to information and resources, encouraging lifelong learning, and promoting cultural and social interactions.
Skidompha’s core values and beliefs are to be respectful, curious, socially aware, and inclusive. We honor the privacy and confidentiality of our patrons and aim to provide a safe and accessible environment.

Skidompha serves the community both in person or through outreach, including partnerships with community organizations, in-person, and virtual learning opportunities, technology assistance, and the provision of meeting spaces. Our collection is diverse, expansive, and evolving. We commit to the continuous reassessment of the programs and services we provide.  

Be well,
Matthew Graff
Executive Director
