Antiracist Resources and Reads: Lists for All Ages

For patrons searching for books on race and justice, our librarians have brought together a sampling of social justice resources that we hope you’ll find helpful in these uncertain times. Whether you’re discussing current events unfolding with your children, your teens, one another, or you’re merely learning for yourself (and we are always learning and growing) the following titles and links are here for you to use. All the listed titles are owned by Three Rivers Library and can checked out by placing them on hold.  Some titles are available as ebooks via hoopla online, where you may check them out immediately.
