Public apology


The Library is deeply distressed to hear late yesterday that a student was asked to leave the Library by a security guard for wearing a keffiyeh. 

We want to extend our sincerest apologies to the student affected by this incident and encourage them to get in touch with the Library. The Library does not condone discrimination on the grounds of cultural dress. 

This is outlined in our Reader and Visitor Code of Conduct. We have taken immediate action and have spoken to the security guard about this incident. 

We strive to create a space where everyone feels safe and welcome. 

To ensure this does not happen again in the future, we will be reaffirming the Library’s Reader and Visitor Code of Conduct with all staff members.
