Multicultural Themes in the Juvenile Collection

Multicultural Childrens Literature Intro.jpg

The multicultural themes in the juvenile collection at the Priddy Library represent some of the most common experiences of new arrivals in our communities. The themes are universal regardless of background or cultural identity of children, young people and their families.

The exhibit is in celebration of Multicultural Children’s Book Day which is January 27, 2017. Its purpose is to raise awareness of diversity in children’s literature since only 10% of children’s books published have diversity content. All children should see themselves in the pages of a book.

The Juvenile Collection at the Priddy Library of the Universities at Shady Grove is endowed in the memory Molly Counihan by members of the Eugene Counihan family. Molly Counihan was an Education Studies student at Towson University in Education when she passed away.
