Youth Book Lists

This LibGuide collects single-topic Youth bibliographies and booklists.


"Imagine a world in which all children can see themselves in the pages of a book." - We Need Diverse Books

The hashtag #OwnVoices was created by young adult author, Corinne Duyvis, to identify books with diverse characters written by people who share those identities. Here you'll find a selection of picture books and full length titles deemed #OwnVoices that were published within the last few years and are available in the Youth Collection. This list is non-exhaustive but can serve as a starting point for your search for diversity in youth literature.
