*A note about this group: This, like any library book discussion group is open to all interested participants. Unfortunately, the NH Interlibrary loan system is unavailable during this time as a result of the Covid pandemic. Therefore, multiple hard copies are not available for loan through the library. However, the NH downloadable books consortium known as Overdrive does have digital copies available with a NH library card, and due to high borrowing demand, extra digital copies have been purchased and made available. This discussion is not intended to take the place of the larger work  to be done to combat racism, rather it is a way to offer perspectives and ideas meant to challenge our own belief systems and the lenses through which whites in our society view. It is expected that participants in this group remain calm and respectful as we move through the discussion.

Call 447-5552 or email tnarducci@conwaypubliclibrary.org with any questions.
