Traveling Library Comes To Shapleigh!

Between January 17-February 1, Shapleigh School has a traveling library! This collection of books is part of the I'm Your Neighbor project, which promotes the use of children’s literature featuring “new arrival” cultures and groups to engage the entire community in a discussion of commonalities and differences. The project features a recommended list of books and an evolving list of engagement projects for educators, librarians, and community organizations who seek to build bridges.

The goal of the project is to both support communities as their cultural makeup evolves and to create opportunities for children’s literature featuring refugees, immigrants, and “new” marginalized groups.

A big thank you to Kelly Martin, Rich Wicker, and the folks at I'm Your Neighbor for creating this wonderful program!! To learn more, visit
