On September 30, Broadway Square's Little Free Library is celebrating the Read in Color® initiative and sharing diverse voices with its annual Read in Color Diversity Day event!

For Read in Color Diversity Day, and we're encouraging residents to:

  • “take a diverse book and share a diverse book” at Broadway Square’s Little Free Library
  • participate in Broadway Square’s Read in Color Diversity Day activities
  • pledge to Read in Color and foster inclusion this day and beyond

Broadway Square's Little Free Library features books from the Read in Color Recommended Reading book list  which will be read at the event. These books represent diverse voices for audiences of all ages.

Join us from 4:00 - 5:00 pm at Broadway Square to collect some Little Free Library and Read in Color® goodies and hear some new stories read aloud. Then stay for the NDSU Homecoming Parade which passes The Square along its Broadway route shortly after 5:30 pm!

See below for additional ways to celebrate diversity and the Read in Color® program. 

Ways to Participate:

Check out this Read in Color Recommended Reading List, developed by Little Free Library’s Diverse Books Advisory Group, and pick out your next book.

This list and Read in Color work to amplify diverse voices in the reading materials of people of all ages, cultures and demographics. This list includes options for all levels of readers.

Some of these books are appearing soon in Broadway Square's Little Free Library, so keep your eyes open and check them off on this PDF as you read them!

Complete this Certificate of Commitment to Read in Color, available here in in English or Spanish.

Everyone can virtually sign a Read in Color pledge as well to indicate their commitment to read and share diverse books. Broadway Square has signed the pledge - now you can, too!

Come and collect fun and durable stickers and bookmarks from the Little Free Library, Read in Color, and Broadway Square.

Don't forget to share your favorite diverse book, too! 

  • Leave a copy of your own Read in Color-themed book in Broadway Square's Little Free Library for someone else to pick up and read!
  • Return the book you borrow to Broadway Square's Little Free Library when you're done with it, so that the voices in these books reach as many people as possible. 
  • Write a review of your favorite book and share it on your social media, tagging #FargoBroadwaySquare
