Peek inside Goin' Someplace Special by Patricia McKissack and illustrated by Jerry Pinkney
Set in 1950s Nashville, this picture book shows the injustices of segregation through the story of Tricia Ann, an African-American girl, who's finally allowed to go outside her neighborhood on her own. The laws say she can't be in many of the places white people can, so she goes to the public library, where everybody is welcome. In their review, Booklist called this book "beautiful tribute to the libraries that were ahead of their time."  Sweet and true!
