As we face some of the most difficult challenges we have ever seen, The Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library affirms its commitment to champion diversity, inclusion, equity, and open access to information. 

The Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library is a place that welcomes all and does not and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender expression, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in its collections, activities, operations, and programs.
