Introducing Read Woke @ Goodnow – our NEW online reading challenge! We invite all ages to read 10 books that give a voice to the voiceless, provide information about disenfranchised groups, or challenge social norms. Choose one book from each of our 10 categories and discover a wealth of diverse books, arm yourself with knowledge, and learn more about others! Sign up today at goodnowlibrary.beanstack.org and join the movement!

The categories include African-American voices, Asian-American voices, Hispanic American voices, Female voices, LGBTQ+ voices, Native American voices, Diverse abilities, Immigrant and Refugee Voices, Social Injustice and Racism and Voices of those experiencing poverty and homelessness.

How do I find Read Woke books?
To help you find books for all the different categories, we’ve created reading lists for each category and for adults, teens and children.
