Books Like Us: Celebrate Diversity Through Reading
For Readers of All Ages: January 1 - March 1, 2021
This winter the Library invites readers to explore the transformative power of seeing oneself reflected in a book.
Why is Winter Reading different this year?
This year has been unique in many ways. We’ve faced a pandemic, but we’ve also experienced a national reckoning on inequity. Arlington Public Library believes that one way to in challenging these inequities is through literature.
Reading books by authors that reflect the wide variety of people and experiences in our community broadens our understanding of each other's lived experience. We hope through this year’s Winter Reading you discover new voices that you may not have encountered otherwise.
