AAPI Resource Library


The APARC Library is located in Appleby Hall room 311 in the Asian Pacific American Resource Center (APARC). It is an Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) resource library filled with fiction, non-fiction, poetry, biographies, graphic novels, children’s literature, academic research, documentaries, and movies surrounding Asian American identity. Some examples include: To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Milk and Honey, Crazy Rich Asians, The Best We Could Do and more! APARC Library is dedicated to providing material for students who identify as AAPI to connect with literacy content with similar experiences, stories, and identity(s) as themselves.
Why is it important to have an AAPI Resource Library?
At a predominantly white institution (PWI), it is vital to center the narratives of Asian American and Pacific Islander experiences and identities. We believe representation matters in AAPI’s journey to success. The resource library has been curated in hopes of fostering feelings of validation and a sense of belonging in American literacy and media.
