New Year, New Books! Of course seeing all the new book titles that are being released for the upcoming year is one of the highlights of my January. I also take the time to revisit my list of all that I have read in the pervious year. I am often amazed by my book count, but sadly there are also many titles that go unchecked on my "To Read List". Not to mention the books that I completely miss the release of!
For those of you who may have also missed new books that came out in 2021 you can browse the collection of booklists provided below.
The Richland Library #OwnVoices initiative is a space for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) staff members to provide thoughtful and well written book reviews, book lists and blog posts. These posts work to promote authors of marginalized groups and their work about the life experiences of these under-represented groups through their own perspective. The series invites our customers to learn one more way we are continuing the conversation in our community and speaking our voice. Find more resources on race, equity, and inclusion, here.
