School libraries play a key role in reflecting the lives and backgrounds of the students and communities they serve. Relevant to both primary and secondary school library staff, this guide offers support on what diversity is and why it matters, providing an overview of types of diversity and their context in children’s literature. The publication considers how diversity issues impact on stocks and services, and provides support for reading development activity through a calendar of key dates and a selection of case studies. The book concludes by soliciting views and suggestions from a range of authors, illustrators, academics and bloggers.
