Lehigh Libraries invites you to explore the Black Lives Matter collection (lehigh.overdrive.com/collection/1090285) of ebooks and audiobooks, available through the new OverDrive platform, as one way to commit to listening, learning, and growing toward action and change.
The Black Lives Matter collection is the first in the Black Voices summer series. This collection will share suggestions for books that reckon with the legacy of white supremacy and anti-Blackness in the United States, and that outline actions necessary for examining and dismantling biases, privilege, and complicity with that legacy. Books added to the list in June include How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi and So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo.
The Black Voices series will grow to include titles across genres that celebrate Black history, thought, excellence, and artistry. You are invited to browse the entire OverDrive collection and submit recommendations for the Black Voices series using this submission form.
OverDrive, a new resource accessible from Lehigh’s OverDrive home page, is an e-reader, tablet, mobile, and web application that lets you easily browse and borrow ebooks and audiobooks available through the Lehigh Libraries. You may recognize OverDrive as the way that you check out and return ebooks at your local public library. Full instructions for installing and using OverDrive on your computer or mobile device are available in our OverDrive Access & Borrowing Instructions document.
