Recommend to represent

Posted by nm365 at Oct 12, 2020 12:55 PM |
The library’s initiative to diversify their collections.

Do you have a favourite book that you find engaging, thought provoking, and diverse?

It’s important to us that our library's collections represent the incredibly diverse range of voices in our students, staff and local population. We are keen to include more works by underrepresented voices and are asking you to recommend titles for us to purchase. These could include (but are not limited to) titles written by BAME, LGBTQ+ or disabled authors as well as titles related to race, gender, sexuality, social class, mental health, disabilities and learning difficulties.

Currently, we have received over 150 recommendations for books. To view the books that have already been purchased visit and search ‘readatleicester’.

We look forward to hearing from you.
