New Arrivals to Pop Lit!!

In June 2020, the Popular Literature committee did an initial sweep of titles in the collection for books centered on conversations of race and racism in the United States. After that sweep we followed up by ordering more books to diversify and continue this conversation in the library and to offer ways for the patrons and employees in the library to continue to educate themselves in this area. Our hope is to continue an open and vulnerable conversation; to work together to be better to each other; and to have a welcome space at FSU for all of our visitors, students, faculty and staff who are black, indigenous, or people of color.

These new books were received September 28, 2020 and are currently in process and will be available for curbside pick up through this link here!
