Do any panelists want to speak about the issue of reviewing, continually updating and weeding a collection? Let's move beyond books about slavery as the go-to for diversity please.
Victoria Murphy
01:32:02
my library is in desperate need of YA book with POC, biography, non-fiction, tough topics and of course fiction, I would love resources
Catherine
01:32:09
Yes! Kid lit has exposed me to so many topics I never knew about. It is concise, interesting and so well written and I keep repeating this to the adults I work with. Good to draw in the adults who accompany the kids to the library (or get the kids to recommend books to me and their adult :))
Kris Murphy
01:32:34
We keep our multicultural books in the same collection...they're just representing a tiny portion of our overall collections.
Kinshasa-EPFL
01:37:07
I like the idea of having it in both places- separated and mixed in. It is about "findability." We want the customer to see representation everywhere. I don't want them to have them to "dig" for them.

What is some new content you wish to see in books that you haven't seen yet?
