Anti-Racism Booklist and Resource Guide

Anti-Racism Booklist and Resources


Newton Free Library stands in solidarity with our neighbors speaking out against racism.

We stand with the American Library Association and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners in condemning racism.

We believe Black lives matter.

In order to fulfill our mission, Newton Free Library must commit to building an anti racist library and foster a space that provides welcoming access for all. We also recognize our role in supporting the community in furthering their own education on race, racism and social justice.

Our librarians will continue to develop this curated guide of books and resources about anti-racism, activism, and the history of systemic racism in the United States.
