Black Lives Matter: Resources

by Library Staff

Black stories matter. Black lives matter. 

At the library, we welcome all persons of every race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status.

We are committed to the safety, dignity, and respect of our patrons, including our Black patrons. We stand with the American Library Association in condemning violence and racism against Black people and People of Color. 

We’ve pulled together a list of books to help put current events into perspective and help confront racism as well as resources and books to help navigate conversations about race with children. Many of the books are available electronically through OverDrive.
