Rainbow Reads is a self-challenge at the Cadott Library to encourage all ages to explore beyond what might be their "normal". We encourage reading featuring characters of all races, genders, identities, and nationalities as part of Rainbow Reads.
Challenge takers should use the Beanstack tracking website/app (www.cadott.beanstack.com) to get started and earn incentives along the way to reading 20 books! There is no set list of titles nor a time limit to complete. Book Club readers are also encouraged to also participate in self-challenge for out-of-club reading as well.
Parents: Please be aware that some titles on this list may not be appropriate for your youngest teens. You may find other titles on our Kids List. Discuss choices together or ask a librarian for help in choosing titles.
This list is is no particular order, and supplemental titles may found using search terms like "LGBTQ+" or "#OwnVoices", as examples. Still can't find something? Ask a librarian and tell us what kind of story you'd like to explore.
