Recently, best-selling author of young adult books Nic Stone emphasized the importance of people reading more than just books about racism, we should also read stories about black people living. In School Library Journal Vanessa Willoughby makes the point that “There is danger in a single story: Rich, multifaceted cultures, communities, and individuals are flattened into a monolith.” Joy can be a radical act, a reclamation of autonomy. Both Ms. Stone and Ms. Willoughby include lists of potential titles to read. Cubberley Education Library has several of the children and young adult titles on these lists. Note: You can now page our books to Green library.

It's summer time, there's a pandemic, and we are social distancing. Has there ever been a better time to fall into the pages of a good book? I don't think so!

Within the last few months, being in quarantine has become something we feel all too familiar with; and, perhaps, this is the first time a majority of us have added the term and concept to our daily lives and experience. For those of us in preventive preservation, however, quarantine is actually a facet of our duties, as we quarantine library and archive materials as a means to safeguard collections.
