Looking for Children's Books?

Almost all of the children's books in our collection are physical books, which we are unable to loan currently due to the pandemic. If you are looking for children's books on race and racism, the following lists may be helpful to you.

Planning on buying books?

If you are considering purchasing books, this list of black-owned bookstores provides information on dozens of bookstores, their status during the pandemic, and whether they have online ordering.  It also includes an extensive Anti-Racist Reading List.
