As part of Diversity Month, SLA-UW is highlighting rad libraries we’ve found that exemplify this behavior. If you know of any, please share!
Now featuring: Margaret Middleton’s Family Inclusive Language
Libraries and other information organizations should be a welcoming place for families of all kinds. Utilizing Margaret Middleton’s “Family-Inclusive Langauge Guide”, originally designed for children’s museums, is a great place to start!
Just in time for us to highlight libraries via Diversity Month (although this is so important, we would have anyway), Jamillah Gabriel is launching a monthly literature subscription box written exclusively by black authors!
You can sign up for the service here (it hasn’t launched yet, but you can subscribe to get notified once it is live) and you can learn more about the project here!
It’s November, which mean’s its Diversity Month! The iSchool is especially big on this, and SLA is eager to participate. Look forward to posts and emails from us highlighting inclusive, diverse, and noteworthy libraries all month long.
If you have any libraries you’d like to share, please post here, email us, or all of the above!

All of our posts will be tagged under Diversity and Diversity Month. Keep these libraries in your thoughts and if you get a chance, see them in person!
