Celebrate AAPI Month with books

One way to honor Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is by reading about history and stories by authors who represent these diverse voices. From inspiring biographies to captivating fiction, Dallas ISD’s Library and Media Services Department is encouraging team members to explore the contributions of Asian American and Pacific Islanders together.

This year’s national theme is “Advancing leaders through innovation” to commemorate the contributions and influence of trailblazers and visionaries among Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. 

Through Dallas ISD’s extensive library resources that are accessible for free, you can check out the collection of e-books, access online platforms like Gale for comprehensive research, and explore enriching print books. These are available to any student and team member in the district.
