The Library Foundation recently launched a new fund supporting library materials that promote the voices, narratives, and histories of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. This fund also supports resources and programs that educate the public on the origins of white privilege, white supremacy, and other forms of institutional racism and human rights issues that plague our society. Donate to this fund at the link below.

The Long Beach Public Library is commemorating Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month with a series of virtual programs. Check out the Library’s YouTube playlist to enjoy these programs whenever you’d like.
