The North Manchester Public Library was thrilled to be one of the recipients of the Lilly Endowment & Indiana Humanities Racial Equity Grant. This grant was awarded to schools and libraries to provide books and materials that advance racial equity to circulating collections.
NMPL is seeing an increased demand for books and other materials in the topic areas of racism and racial justice. We will now have the ability to offer a broader scope of books and films to promote greater racial equity awareness and community dialogue. We believe these items will help provide our community with "windows" into other community members experiences as well as provide library users with more "mirrors" of their own experiences and culture.
We invite all of our patrons to check out this collection today! You'll find these DVDs soon on our New DVD shelf!
The mission of the North Manchester Public Library is to provide materials, programs, and services necessary to meet the recreational and educational needs of the community in an easily-accessible facility, which is a community center of activity and information.
