Liberating CityLibrary

About Liberating CityLibrary

Help us to improve the diversity of our collections

Based on your suggestions we hope to increase the range of books in the library by authors from the Global Majority, by LGBTQI+ people and titles which recognise overlapping identities and experiences such as gender, class, sexuality and disability.

"Global Majority is a collective term that first and foremost speaks to and encourages those so-called to think of themselves as belonging to the global majority. It refers to people who are Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and or have been racialised as 'ethnic minorities'." - Rosemary Campbell-Stephens MBE

To get involved complete the online form. If the requested book costs less than £100 and there are no copies in stock, your order will be placed within five working days.
