Anti-Racism Resources for Teens

Part of our commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion here at the Petoskey District Library is sharing resources with patrons so they can learn and understand points of view that may differ from their own. To that end, Teen Services staff has compiled some resources that we will share here and that we will periodically update as needed.
