CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE LIBRARY WALK
Developed by Sandra Hughes-Hassell and Amanda Hitson
The Culturally Responsive Library Walk is designed to be a collaborative tool for administrators, librarians, and teachers to assess the library’s responsiveness to the needs of the culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students who attend the school. The goal of the Library Walk is to identify strengths, to discover areas that need improvement, and to develop a path to achieve a culturally responsive library program. It is an observation and planning document that is informed by research on culturally responsive pedagogy and is based on the philosophy of creating a student-centered library program. The Culturally Responsive Library Walk steps are listed in order with the observation sheets attached.

Rich in Color is [a blog] dedicated to reading, reviewing, talking about, and otherwise promoting young adult fiction starring or written by people of color or people from First/Native Nations. We believe that teens (and adults!) should be able to find themselves in the kinds of books they love to read. At Rich in Color, we want to showcase a wide variety of multicultural books so that kids will be able to see themselves as more than just the sassy best friend, the very special lesson, or the extra in the background.
