From the Idaho Commission for Libraries May 2021 The Scoop newsletter
May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month and at this website you’ll find wonderful resources from the Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as they pay tribute to the generations of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who
have enriched America’s history and are instrumental in its future success.
Here you will find a smattering of just a few of the recommended Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) experiences, children’s books, and #OwnVoices authors. Consider these or find your own recommended book list:
- Orange County Library System recommendations
- Whatcom County Library System recommendations
- Penguin/Random House recommendations
Let’s not isolate our exploration and celebration of Asian American/Pacific Islander heritage to the month of May — let’s introduce, explore, and celebrate AAPI authors, books, experiences, and stories all year long!
