Great Fiction Reads for Black History Month

Home / Blog / Great Fiction Reads for Black History Month

Because we are library workers – there will be a booklist! Celebrate Black History Month with some of the best fiction by Black authors from 2020-21. These recommended titles represent a variety of diverse perspectives across different literary genres. Where available, a link to the Toronto Public Library has been provided to reserve a copy in a variety of formats.  Happy reading!

Happy International Women’s Day #IWD2021 !

The Toronto Public Library Workers are mostly women and have worked to establish the busiest urban public library system in the world.

No small feat, if you ask me! And not without challenges. Yet, we persist. @local4948 👓

We hope to see you all at 1pm today at our online Rally! International Women’s Day 2021 Toronto Virtual Rally
SATURDAY MARCH 6, 2021 at 1:00pm EST Streaming Live at https://www.facebook.com/IWDToronto/ #IWD2021 #InternationalWomensDay #Canada


What people need now is more engagement with library workers. Seniors living in isolation, children and parents, people new to Canada, youth experiencing mental health challenges... the list goes on.

Reverse this decision! @EssexCountyON @CUPEOntario @Local4948 https://twitter.com/cupeontario/status/1366409185890619392

Spoke at the Southern Alberta Library Conference earlier this week re: a health and safety survey sent out to library workers @Local4948

It’s been very challenging for us during this pandemic, in our work and personal lives, but we are working hard for the people of Toronto.
