Livonia Citizens Black Books Drive

Let's put the passion of Livonia Citizens Caring About Black Lives to good and immediate use. Money used from this fundraiser will be used to purchase children's books with black characters and/or black authors, purchased from the black-owned book stores listed below.  The books will be donated to the Livonia Public Library to expand its offering of diverse stories.

When books are donated to the library, they put a sticker on the inside cover recognizing the donor and we will ask it to read 'Livonia Citizens Caring About Black Lives'.

Small steps make a big difference and by expanding the number of books featuring black characters in the library's collection we can help normalize diversity for children who may not otherwise be exposed to it. 

If you have suggested titles or would like your donation to go to the purchase of a specific book please share.
