**Note: I “read” all of these books via their audiobook form, through the library app Libby.
Using a library card, you have access to the entire digital collection of the library. Smaller libraries have generally formed consortiums with other libraries, so they have extensive collections, sometimes bigger than major city libraries. You’ve already funded libraries, use them!

All We Can Save by a lot of women, Edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine K. Wilkinson
Each chapter of this book is written by a different expert, and they all are women. This book touches on climate justice more than most, and it’s perspectives are fresh and welcome. Plus Julia Louis-Dreyfus reads some of the chapters in the audio book. It’s fantastic.
