Loved this quote from Jason Reynolds: “Librarians are the rebels of the school. They realize that everything belongs on the shelf, even if they don’t agree with it…I would argue that librarians are working as anti-racists. It’s embedded into who you are as librarians.”
“Why do you use fiction to escape reality?” Bro, I’ve lived through a recession, two wars and a pandemic. I was a child when 9/11 happened; I watched it unfold live. Escape is a wonderful thing. I pick up a book and I’m free.
