A Diverse Community...

The High Plains Library District is committed to serving diverse populations. We choose to celebrate the differences between people, be they based on age, gender, race, diverse abilities, cultural background or sexual orientation. HPLD strives to build communities where difference is appreciated and valued, with the understanding that differences between people are what enriches our communities and enables us to share in a wealth of experience.
