Book Titles for an Inclusive Library
The Local Market is proud to share a list of book titles that celebrate diversity, encourage inclusion and spark dialogue about racism and inequality. These are organized by age group and were hand-selected by librarians and school administrators.
We have donated these books to local schools to help build and enhance the current selection of books that discuss race, inequality, cultures and social issues that affect us all - indirectly or directly.
The next time you reach for a book (for yourself or someone else) consider these titles! When you can, also think about purchasing these books (or any book) from your local independent bookseller. This is a way to shop local, expand your horizons and spark a conversation or two that may help to make the world a better place.
