The Mississippi Mills Public Library has created a few lists! Download them from the links below – or ask for a copy to be included in your next curbside pick-up.

The titles in the lists are suggested by library staff to support #BlackLivesMatter, National Indigenous History Month (year-round) in Canada, PRIDE in Mississippi Mills – at any time of year, for all ages.
