February is Black History Month, and the library is helping readers explore the Black experience by offering special displays in the library locations and on the website. Of course, we hope readers will seek out and enjoy Black authors and illustrators all year long.
Today I’m offering a small sampling of adult and children’s books from our online interactive list. Many of the titles are available in both print and digital formats, so whether you like to read and/or listen on a device or hold a book in your hands, we’ve got you covered.
