African American Resource Collection

As outlined in our Equity Statement, the Library is committed to providing equitable access to our resources and cultivating an equitable environment for both patrons and staff. The Library unequivocally condemns acts of racism, hatred, and violence, and stands in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and the Statement Condemning Increased Violence and Racism Towards Black Americans released by the Black Caucus of the American Library Association.

Reading Lists

Library staff has compiled reading lists for all ages regarding anti-racism, systemic oppression, implicit bias, social justice, and how to be a better ally to people of color. Due to the high demand for many of these titles, the Library is purchasing more copies to reduce wait times.
