Images of books suggested by staff

To celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, our staff has curated these suggested lists of works from Asian American and Pacific Islander authors and creators for all ages. Interested in a personalized AAPI booklist? We've got you covered. Fill out a form (Adult & Teens or Youth) and a librarian will send you a list! 

As a library, we continue to firmly stand against the acts of violence and discrimination against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders that have increased in the past year and are currently working toward creating a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive library environment.
