UNESCO Public Library ManifestoThe services of the public library are provided on the basis of equality of access for all, regardless of age, race, sex, religion, nationality, language or social status.

  10. 10. All people live in an increasingly heterogeneous society. There are more than 6,000 different languages in the world. The international migration rate is growing every year resulting in an increasing number of people with complex identities.Globalization, increased migration, faster communication, ease of transportation and other 21st century forces have increased cultural diversity in many nations where it might not have previously existed or has augmented the existing multicultural makeup. IFLA Multicultural Library Manifesto, 2008 10
  11. 11. Role and Purpose As libraries serve diverse interests and communities, they function aslearning, cultural, and information centres. In addressing cultural andlinguistic diversity, library services are driven by their commitment to the principles of fundamental freedoms and equity of access to information and knowledge for all, in the respect of cultural identity and values.
