Books Celebrating the Asian American and Pacific Islander Community

Thursday, May 4, 2023

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

If you're looking for stories and information written by and about people from varied backgrounds, races, ethnicities, life experiences, and viewpoints, the Library has an amazing collection for you. We love to help you find books and other materials in the collection that you may not have seen before.

This month, we are highlighting books in our collection by and about people in the Asian-American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. This includes people with connections to the cultures and ancestries of China, India, Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Korea, Hawaii and other Asian and Pacific Islands. We encourage you to explore these books with us!
