Anti-Racism Resources

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.
