The Theme for the 2018 Children’s Library UnConference is ‘Diversity in the Library’. Today, more than ever, we need to affirm and preserve our multi-lingual and multi-cultural society. Children must grow up respecting and understanding others who may look different from them and have different beliefs, customs and religions. Parag believes a library is the best means to foster this understanding and sensitivity in a non-didactic manner. Multicultural literature fosters positive self-esteem and prevents students from feeling isolated. It has the ability to nurture respect, empathy and acceptance among all students, bridging the gap between students from diverse cultural backgrounds. As such the roles of children’s literature and libraries become critical.
