Recommend books to mark Black History Month

Posted on 5 October 2020

We’re celebrating Black History Month this October across the Library.

Black History Month

Please send us any suggestions for new titles relating to the history, achievements and contributions of Black people that you'd like us to add to our collections.

To make a suggestion, please fill in our online purchasing form - please add a note on the form to say that the book you’re requesting is for Black History Month. We’ll collect up all your suggestions throughout October and start ordering after that.

You might also be interested to look through our online Black Lives Matter reading list, which we created this summer as part of our Your Library, Your Voice initiative. We’re busy compiling other reading lists and would welcome any suggestions you have for what we should be focusing on.  

Wishing everyone a celebratory Black History Month ahead!
