The goal of this project was to assist the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) in creating a plan to implement the recommendations of an equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) assessment. In 2021, NOLS commissioned an EDI assessment of the organization, both as a public library and as a workplace. A five-year implementation plan was created using the assessment’s recommendations, input from NOLS staff, and information from other library systems engaging in EDI work. This plan will serve as a guide for NOLS in cultivating an organizational culture that is welcoming and accessible for all people.
