The East Gwillimbury Public Library values lifelong learning and we believe that everyone belongs at the Library. In order to honour the lived histories of the many diverse members of our community, we have curated a few reading lists with the goal of allowing you to educate yourself. Read, learn and listen. These are all important steps to building a better world for everyone.

Educate Yourself Glossary
What does it mean to say that words have power? The more of them we add to our vocabulary, the more empowered we are to discuss topics as better allies and participants. Language evolves constantly to provide better description and improve the quality of necessary conversations. There is no universally-agreed, unchanging terminology, but we can learn about the language used in this moment by some of the people who lead change for their communities so we can join the conversation.
