PBS Books is a multi-platform initiative celebrating the love of reading. Through social and digital engagement and live coverage of important literary events across the country, PBS Books celebrates books and writers and works to foster a passion for reading among public media viewers and listeners.
PBS Books in 2018 launched a Library Engagement Program, a new national initiative sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, to build and enhance working relationships between libraries and their local PBS stations.
To determine the best way to serve libraries nationwide, PBS Books held a dozen interviews with librarians in late 2018, and then developed a Library Engagement Stakeholder Survey.
The survey received an overwhelming response, nearly 1,000 library personnel from 44 states and Washington, D.C., participated in a survey. Learn more about the results.

The Personal Genetics Education Project (pgEd) is a team of scientists, social scientists, educators, and community organizers, who talk with people about genetics in every way that it touches our lives – from health to the workplace and from the environment to the criminal justice system. Founded in 2006 in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, pgEd is a non-profit organization that creates free, interactive lessons that explore the ethical, legal, and social implications of knowing more about one’s DNA. We combine accurate scientific content with the real-world impact on people and the choices they may face. pgEd is working to bring conversations about genetic advances outside of the halls of research labs and into the public sphere – in classrooms and community centers, libraries and museums, places of worship, movie theaters and government offices, and online.

Du Bois called, “The Kingdom of Culture.” ASALH’s mission is to create and disseminate knowledge about Black History, to be, in short, the nexus between the Ivory Tower and the global public. We labor in the service of Blacks and all humanity.
