Mirrors and Windows

Mirrors and Windows Reading Experience

A mirror is a story that reflects your own culture and helps you build your identity. Seeing ourselves in literature is a gift. It is an empowering experience as a reader to see a protagonist whose life experiences relate to our own.

A window is a resource that offers you a view into someone else’s life experiences.
It is critical to understand that we cannot truly learn about ourselves unless we learn about others as well.

Participate in the Mirrors and Windows Reading Experience to explore the stories of our diverse world.
Discovering the experiences of others will help you connect with your neighbors in Mesa County.

Complete this reading experience by earning badges. For each badge, you will select and explore a title, reflect and/or share how the materials you chose sit with you. Each badge you earn will allow you to discover new stories or connect with stories similar to your own.

Discover diverse books, films, and more.
