East and South East Asian Heritage Month

East and South East Asian (ESEA) Heritage Month is an annual celebration to highlight and celebrate the achievements, culture, history, and identities of ESEA communities to raise awareness and foster inclusivity.  

The outbreak of COVID-19 saw a dramatic increase in racist incidents directed towards ESEA communities in the UK. The Britain’s East and South East Asian Network (besea.n) launched the first ESEA Heritage Month in September 2021.

Here at Surrey, we will be celebrating East and South East Asian Heritage Month with a Diversity Book Club event and Book Display in the library.

The Library display is in our Curator’s Corner (just inside the Library Gates on Level 1). Come and browse the selection of books from our collections. Leave your thoughts on our interactive board. The display will remain until Wednesday 4 October.

Black History Month – Celebrating our Sisters!

Coming soon! The Library will be celebrating with a display in Curator’s Corner, just inside the Library gates on Level 1. Come and see the presentation and browse books from our collections. We will have a pop-up book giveaway during this time so keep following us and look out for more information nearer the time!
