Every single one of us who occupies the library in any capacity is entitled to a safe space: a space free of discomfort or fear, a space free of bullying and harassment of any kind. We will inhabit this space together honouring our differences and celebrating the gifts we each bring to the table.
There is a zero-tolerance policy for any behaviour that makes another person feel uncomfortable or unsafe. Any such behaviour – either digitally or in person - will result in an immediate ban from accessing this space and our services. This will be at the discretion of library management and is non-negotiable.
All members and visitors must commit to treating one another with politeness and respect at all times. If any of us are subjected to or witness bullying and harassment, we will speak out knowing that our voices will be heard, and we will be taken seriously.
Together we can create a safe space.
