We have a new book display in our Adult Section featuring the books we were able to purchase thanks to a $1,000 Advancing Racial Equity Collection Grant from Indiana Humanities.
This new collection features diverse characters and stories and were chosen from an approved list provided by Indiana Humanities. The materials on the approved list were selected because they “address race, systemic racism and/or the Black experience through a humanities lens,” according to the Indiana Humanities website.
Our director selected books for all ages to add to our collection, and we are so excited to share them with our local community!
It’s almost time for Labor Day in the United States. That means it’s back to school for our students and teachers and, unfortunately, almost time for that last summer cookout. We’ve made a short list of books to read with your children to teach them about work and different jobs. All of the books on the list are part of our local collection at Tyson Library. If your family is interested in other books related to work and jobs, we’d be happy to help you find them during your next visit!
