Notable Books For a Global Society (NBGS) - CL/R SIG The Children's Literature and Reading Special Interest Group of the International Literacy Association formed the Notable Books for a Global Society Committee in 1995. Under the guidance of Yvonne Siu-Runyan, who originated and spearheaded the project, the committee undertook to identify outstanding trade books that it felt would help promote understanding across lines of culture, race, sexual orientation, values, and ethnicity.The Notable Books for a Global Society (NBGS) list was developed to help students, teachers, and families identify books that promote understanding of and appreciation for the world's full range of diverse cultures and ethnic and racial groups. Although advances in technology allow us to communicate quickly with people around the world and the growth of world trade brings us increasingly into contact with far-flung members of the "global village," today's society is rife with tension, conflict and ignorance of others different from us.

We have created displays, signage, an online newsletter and new library website.
Lesson Plans Prepared under the supervision of curriculum development specialists from the Sarasota County School District, our age-appropriate lessons address applicable learning intentions and success criteria expected of every student while engaging students in our core values: diversity, inclusion, integrity and respect. Of 206 teachers surveyed in 2020, 97% of teachers availing themselves of our lesson plans and teaching materials felt they were meaningful and beneficial tools for their classes and enhanced the field trip experience. "I can't believe how truly RICH the resources are for regular classroom teachers without extensive art training. I plan to continue integrating art into my classroom so my students can see, observe, and appreciate art and the world around them."
