Equity Books

Our goal is to support minority authors and put more inclusive books out into the world. Part of that is via Little Free Libraries, which have increasingly popped up throughout the country. One of our goals is getting Little Free Libraries installed around Charlotte in parks and greenways--really anywhere that makes these books easily accessible to the public. When we look at locations, we look at a couple of things: Who are the people we can help educate, and how can we make sure our slogan (#SeeYourselfInBooks) is reflected in the communities we bring books to?
