We are launching the Belongg Library Network all over the country – with 22 chapters across 16 cities and the participation of over a 100 volunteers, the network is going to be a platform through which we intend to have conversations on diversity, inclusion and identity through literature and other mediums.

This inaugural event will be hosted on Zoom, open to all after registration, and will comprise of sessions that discuss the importance of diverse literature, inclusive literary spaces, and need to harness the arts to foster inclusion and tackle the “othering” that is becoming increasingly common across the world, and the announcement of the ‘Inclusive “Librarian” Award’, and online engagement activities such as quizzes and Q&As with audience. 

When? 
11am time to 1:30pm time, 28th November 2020.

Belongg, in partnership with 22 cultural and literary spaces across the country is really excited to announce the launch of the Belongg Library Network. The Library Network seeks to create spaces for diverse and inclusive literature throughout the country. Each chapter will bring together a lending library, frequent book readings and author events (virtual events while Covid persists) and will foster a community of like-minded readers in each city.
