Resources for Truth & Reconciliation

Resources for Truth and Reconciliation is a series of book lists, divided into various topics.

These lists are available in a binder at the information desk at each of our library locations, and the printable PDF versions are below. Scrolling galleries below include some key titles from this collection.

All titles are available to patrons in any NLPL library across the province. If the title you want to read is not on the shelf at your local library, please ask our staff for assistance or use our online catalog to request the item (and we'll deliver it to your local library).

Many (but not all) of these titles are also available in eBook and/or eAudiobook format. See the links to curated lists, or search Overdrive/Libby for any title you find in the lists below.
