Learn about the Asian and Pacific Islander Experience - Adult Reading List

Posted 04/16/21 by Library News

The Toledo Lucas County Public Library celebrates the diversity of our community and works to advance equity, access, inclusion, and belonging through our services, collections, programs, and policies. The recent violent attacks against Asian Americans are in direct conflict with the Library's values and we unequivocally condemn these hateful actions.

It is incumbent upon the Library to provide a wide variety of materials that inform, challenge, and inspire people to learn more about Asian and Pacific Islander community members. Fiction, nonfiction, short stories, poetry, memoirs, thrillers, historical fiction, science fiction, and more can help people expand their horizons and consider the diverse perspectives of our neighbors.

All you need is a Library card to begin your own journey of discovery and understanding. If you have a card, but need help with your account number or PIN, call 419.259.5200. If you need a Library card, you can apply and begin borrowing digital materials within minutes with our online application.
