In response to the death of George Floyd and ensuing news coverage, Pikes Peak Library District has curated a list of resources for our community. Find links to national and local news coverage, deeper background on the issues, books, and other items. Please note that many of these stories are developing.
PPLD is hosting community conversations on the topic of Building Police and Community Relations. You can find more information here.
In 1993, Clarence and Peggy Shivers, working in concert with PPLD, created the Shivers Fund at PPLD to expand the Shivers African American Historical and Cultural Collection, to promote the arts through concerts, and to expand educational opportunities for our young people to encourage tolerance and diversity.
