The California State Library is working with local libraries to collect COVID-19 stories from across the state. We invite you to share your experience — so that we can preserve these memories for future Californians. All types of expression are welcome-- share a poem, artwork, a journal entry, a video or any other format that you've captured your story.
Recommended books, websites, movies, and videos to support learning about race and doing anti-racist work. This list is far from exhaustive, but we hope it provides a good introduction and launchpad to more resources. All these resources are either free or available using your library card.
