Anti-Racism Resources

During these uncertain times, children and teens may have questions about race, racism, and social justice. Books and resources are one way for families to address these issues. They can be a way to begin a conversation, educate ourselves, and lead to understanding and change. The Easton Public Library has compiled a list of resources to help families and anyone interested in finding materials that will open and further that conversation.
