We value our community: We have created a warm and welcoming environment for our communities by providing our staff with the opportunity to work very closely with community members of all ages and ethnic backgrounds through our mobile library and outreach services. We offer educational and engaging programs, groups, forums, blogs, training and learning opportunities for babies, children, teenagers, adults and senior citizens in various languages and for those with disabilities.

Everyone is welcome at YPRL. Workplaces that are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexuality, physical or mental abilities and ethnicity are stronger, more creative and more innovative.

We encourage applications from people from diverse backgrounds.
