The Friendship Free Library affirms that all libraries are forums for information and ideas, and that the following basic policies should guide their services.

  • Books and other library resources should be provided for the interest, information, and enlightenment of all people of the community this library serves.  Materials should not be excluded because of the origin, background, or views of those contributing to their creation.
  • This library should provide materials and information presenting all points of view on current and historical issues.  Materials should not be proscribed or removed because of partisan or doctrinal disapproval.
  • This library should challenge censorship in the fulfillment of our responsibility to provide information and enlightenment.
  • This library should cooperate with all persons and groups concerned with resisting abridgment of free expression and free access to ideas.
  • A person’s right to use this library should not be denied or abridged because of origin, age, background, or views.
  • This library which makes exhibit spaces and meeting rooms available to the public we serve should made such facilities available on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use.
