Black History Month

February 3, 2014

This month is short, but it’s definitely not short on things to do at the library with your family! We’ve got events scheduled every Saturday this month to help us celebrate Black History Month. Young children can check out books to become more familiar with any number of famous people, including Martin Luther King, Jr., President Obama, Jackie Robinson, and Duke Ellington. Look for displays throughout the library full of other interesting and entertaining items to check out and take home.

Saturday events are held at 2 pm and include the Local Author Panel with Raquel Eatmon, Katherine Davis, and Brandi Johnson that was last week on February 1st; an Open Mic Black History celebration featuring poetry, prose, or music, and a Sweet Potato Pie contest on February 8th; Is Said and Advance Party on February 15th; wrapping up with The Talented Tenth Show, open to young people, grade 5—college, who wish to perform a talent (solo or as a group) on February 22nd.
