You may have noticed that indie bookstores are running a campaign “everybody gets a book”. This is a philosophy the folks at Cubberley Library heartily endorse so I have come up with a few of our recent favorites. You can check out our copy or have fun shopping.
If You Come to Earth is a lovely picture book, so much so that a couple of us in Cubberley had to buy our own copies. Another fabulous picture book is I Am Every Good Thing. The author's previous book, Crown: an Ode to the Fresh Cut was fantastic and his newest title also does not disappoint.

Recently, best-selling author of young adult books Nic Stone emphasized the importance of people reading more than just books about racism, we should also read stories about black people living. In School Library Journal Vanessa Willoughby makes the point that “There is danger in a single story: Rich, multifaceted cultures, communities, and individuals are flattened into a monolith.” Joy can be a radical act, a reclamation of autonomy. Both Ms. Stone and Ms. Willoughby include lists of potential titles to read. Cubberley Education Library has several of the children and young adult titles on these lists. Note: You can now page our books to Green Library or another campus library.
Cubberley Education Library has a range of resources for children and adults to continue the discussions and learning of the Juneteenth celebrations and now you can page our materials to Green. The children's books are in paper, but the other guides are for electronic resources. For more guides see our homepage under Topic guides and Children's and young adult books.
The following is an interview with Mario Pamplona, Operations Manager for Library Privileges at Stanford Libraries. Mario has collaborated with Stanford Archives over the past several months on the development of LibGuides, including the recently published Black Students at Stanford University LibGuide.
