We need diverse books because we need books & media to give every reader & watcher & listener who walks in to my library mirrors & windows to see themselves and to see the diversity of the world around them.
And, from what was on our shelves (from top to bottom, left to right):
Ask the Passengers by A. S. King
The Fire Horse Girl by Kay Honeyman
Warrior by Ellen Oh
The Tinker King by Tiffany Trent
Killer of Enemies by Joseph Bruchac
The Port Chicago 50 by Steve Sheinkin
Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out by Susan Kuklin
Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant by Tony Cliff
Bayou by Jeremy Love
Monsoon Summer by Mitali Perkins
Those are just a few titles to try — but we need more.  Many more.  Too many to count.
(Please excuse the halo of light — it’s just the windows, really.)

In this video produced by our city television station, you will see a quick story about our Rockin’ Robotics program, which is the first of the programs have done, partnering with the SEEC office at UT-Dallas.

Having now done this program 9 times, we are moving on to developing new curriculum and classes using the new Mindstorms EV3 kits. We are offering the simpler Lego WeDo programs for younger children.
