Libraries closed - All Library locations
remain closed to limit the spread of COVID-19. Many locations are offering

#OwnVoices is a term coined by the writer Corinne Duyvis, and refers to an author from a marginalized or under-represented group writing about their own experiences/from their own perspective, rather than someone from an outside perspective writing as a character from an underrepresented group.
Note: Not all literature with diverse perspectives is own voices literature, which is important to consider when you're reading to broaden your point of view. This list only scratches the surface, but it will get you off to a good start!
