A message from Daisy Porter-Reynolds, Library Director

Please know that we have removed the poem in question from the library as of Saturday night. I offer my heartfelt apology to our community, but I know that is not enough to heal the pain this has caused. I want all of our customers to feel safe and welcome at the library, and I am taking measures to make certain this never happens again.

Our approval process for exhibits will now be handled by a team including myself and a library board member to represent the community. Library decision-makers will undergo training on inclusion and diversity. The library will also work with local faith leaders on providing programming that celebrates all religions and cultures.

We want to help open frank discussions about cultural differences for the Aurora and Fox Valley communities. Through communication and understanding, we aim to improve our relationships between our diverse cultures.

Again, I am so sorry, and I welcome further suggestions for how the library can continue to improve in this area.

Daisy Porter-Reynolds, Library Director
