Project READY is a three-year program funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) that aims to create a professional development curriculum for school librarians and other educators focused on racial equity and culturally sustaining pedagogy.

Watch this video to hear Wake County Public School librarians and teachers discuss the impact Project READY (Reimagining Equity and Access for Diverse Youth) has already made on their approach to engaging with students. The speakers were participants in the face-to-face curriculum development sessions held during the summer of 2017.

UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS) Professor Sandra Hughes-Hassell and Research Associate Casey Rawson (who produced the video) lead the Project READY team.
