About READ: Racial Education, Activism, and Discussion

READ is a collaboration between Champaign-Urbana area public and academic libraries that seeks to promote racial literacy and discussion, and to encourage anti-racist activism and self-reflection. Each month we will read, listen to, or watch media centered around a specific theme and participate in a moderated discussion reflecting on what we learned, and what action items we can complete. 

Participating libraries include: 

Danville Public Library

Mahomet Public Library

Parkland College Library

Philo Public Library

Rantoul Public Library

St. Joseph Township Library

University High School Library

Urbana Free Library

University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Library
