Diverse Voices at a Grassroots, Community Level

Read in Color is bringing diverse books to Little Free Library book-sharing boxes around the world. The program has four key components: (1) Read in Color pledge: Everyone can sign a pledge indicating their commitment to read and share diverse books. Participants have the option to showcase their commitment on the Read in Color Pledge Wall and have access to special resources. (2) Little Free Library installations: Read in Color is establishing new Little Free Library book-sharing boxes filled with culturally relevant books in high-need communities on a city-by-city basis, working in tandem with local partners. (3) Free diverse books: When Read in Color launches in a city, Little Free Library stewards in the area can apply to receive shipments of diverse books at no cost, purchased from BIPOC-owned independent bookstores whenever possible. (4) Recommended reading lists: The Diverse Books Advisory Group provides a list of multicultural books for children, adolescents, and adults representing Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American, Muslim, LGBTQ, and other communities.
