Pictures of the Week: 3M’s Post-It ‘Partner for Pride’ Wall

Attendees of the 2015 ALA Annual Conference added their favorite diverse book suggestions to 3M's heart-shaped display made of rainbow-hued Post-it notes.

diversity wallAttendees passing by the 3M booth at the 2015 American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference  in San Francicso were encouraged to write down their favorite title of a book supporting diversity and add it to a heart-shaped display made of rainbow-hued Post-it notes. For each title posted on the Partner for Pride wall, 3M donated five dollars to ALA’s  Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table. The above attendee is filling in the last officially designated spot on the wall…although the posts continued after that. The 449 suggestions amounted to a donation of $2,245.
