Libraries are institutions that celebrate learning. We are committed to providing accessible anti-racism resources from which we can learn, opening the dialogue “How can we do better?” We learn from the voices of the Black community and people of color, who have been fighting against racism for decades. Below are some resources and titles in our collection. We will continue to order books that help foster a culture of anti-racism.
