Children ages 4-11 can explore social justice topics that impact their daily lives through children’s literature. GVSU, GRPL and community volunteers will read children’s books on that month’s social justice topic (e.g. celebrating diversity, gender, equity, disability).
After the book readings, we discuss the month’s social justice topic in small groups and enjoy a snack and themed craft activity. This program is a partnership between the Grand Rapids Public Library and the GVSU School of Social Work.
September’s topic: Celebrating Diversity and Difference
October’s topic: Gender and Equity
November’s topic: Immigration and Refugees
December’s topic: Disability and Ableism
