Bringing Diversity to Your Library Collection

This is the first of a series of free Diverse Libraries webinars offered through a partnership between Penguin Random House, Libraries Connected and the National Literacy Trust.

They have been designed to help you ensure that your library collection and the reading experience you offer is as diverse and inclusive as possible.

Visit our Diverse Libraries page to find out about the full series of three webinars and the different topics each will address. Each can be booked as a standalone event, but we'd encourage you to join all three.

Who should attend?

Webinars are open to all library staff or teachers based in primary or secondary schools, public or community libraries across the UK.

The session will:

  • Explore ways to reflect on and make additions to library catalogues in order to better reflect a diverse society focusing in particular on books by writers and illustrators of colour.
  • Introduce key research from the National Literacy Trust
  • Provide insight on the latest titles available from a range of publishers, including Penguin Random House
  • Explore best practice cases studies with Libraries Connected

Participants will be invited to share their own experiences and expertise throughout the session.
