Who we are: LEAD is comprised of librarians in Edmonds School District and Sno-Isle Librarians. Our monthly meetings are held online.

Edmonds School District and Sno-Isle librarians work hard to ensure that all books we recommend/purchase for our school library collections meet our district's selection guidelines and policies. One of LEAD's (Librarians for Equity and Diversity) goals is to provide updated lists of well-reviewed titles which authentically and joyously center characters from historically marginalized communities.

Los bibliotecarios del Distrito Escolar de Edmonds y de Sno-Isle trabajan arduamente para asegurar que todos los libros que recomendamos y compramos para las colecciones de nuestras bibliotecas escolares cumplan con las pautas y políticas de selección de nuestro distrito. Uno de los objetivos de LEAD (Bibliotecarios para la Equidad y la Diversidad) es proporcionar listas actualizadas de títulos bien revisados que centran de forma auténtica y alegre los personajes de comunidades históricamente marginadas.
