During the month of February, Bayne Library is celebrating Black History Month. Visit our display for adults on the first floor for books by black authors and books and movies focusing on social justice. Also visit our Racial Justice resource guide for more information about the movement.
Our children’s area has a great selection of titles about civil rights leaders, groundbreaking African American athletes, musicians, and artists. Visit our Black History for Kids book list for some of our favorites.
As important as Black History Month is, it is equally important to us that our general collection reflects the diversity of our nation and our neighborhoods. It is a wonderful and powerful moment when a child sees their own face reflected in their favorite everyday storybooks. Visit our list of favorite Children’s Picture Books with Diverse Characters.
