May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, which celebrates the lives and contributions of inspiring Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders through various mediums. Here are a few books from Asian American and Pacific Islander authors that you should include on your reading list, from prize-winning fiction to graphic novels, essays, and memoirs.

PRO TIP: Access our library catalog online through Clever app or the student portal.

May is also Mental Health Awareness Month.

Thank you Bellevue School Foundation donors for funding our new mental health books!

Happy Reading! Mrs. Miller
