Multicultural 2017

As part of JLG’s mission to “fuel excellence in libraries, literacy, and learning”, raising awareness about the need for culturally and ethnically diverse books is critical to supporting the literacy needs of multicultural students. Below you’ll find our Multicultural 2017 #JLGSelections Book List. (Please note that you need to log into your JLG account to view member pricing.)

In addition, JLG is proud to sponsor the Multicultural Children’s Book Day Classroom Reading Challenge by donating over 200 multicultural #JLGSelections. Learn more about the MCBD challenge here:
