Can’t decide what to read next? Let our librarians point you to something interesting.
At this difficult time in the American civil rights movement, librarians have put together a list
of ebooks and audiobooks to learn about systemic racism, prejudice, and growing up Black in America.
One of the most important things we can do is to educate ourselves on and listen to the experiences of people of color. Here are some selections available from the library’s catalog.
