Visit the Library lobby all week to see a pop-up display of books and movies from across the globe! We’ll also provide search tips on how to discover new favorite titles by searching for diverse writers and filmmakers.

Do you already have a favorite book or movie from a diverse voice or place that’s not in our collection? Let us know by placing a title into our suggestion box, and we’ll consider adding it. If you can’t make it to the library, you can submit suggestions via Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #BentleyLibraryWishlist, post your suggestions on Facebook, or comment here.

We’ll also have a giant world map on display. While you’re browsing the books and movies, take a moment to pinpoint the location where you or your ancestors come from, and check out the diversity of our Bentley community.

Happy reading, searching, and pinning!
