The New Westminster Public Library is committed to the process of Truth and Reconciliation. We understand that as a colonial institution there is much to do both internally and within our community to decolonize our processes, services and programs.

Our journey has begun by educating ourselves. We are working to develop an understanding and appreciation of the lived experiences and historical wrongs committed against First Nations individuals and communities. We also seek to  find ways to celebrate and amplify First Nations cultures, voices and perspectives through our programs, collections and services.
