Public libraries are places of inclusion and empowerment, dedicated to breaking down barriers to access and resisting inequality. Below are some resources that illuminate systems of race, privilege and power as well as how to enact change in ourselves and our institutions. We hope these resources help you recognize and challenge biases, navigate difficult conversations and create an inclusive, respectful space for learning, engagement and improvement.
