Black History Month 2021

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Celebrate Black History Month with the Library! Black history is a crucial part of our nations’ story and Black history matters. Throughout February, the Library will host virtual programs that honor the history, culture, and lives of Black Americans. Our Black History Month blogs and recommended books and music offer additional opportunities to listen, learn, and grow in understanding and appreciation.

You can also WIN PRIZES. Follow us on social media for a weekly trivia contest during Black History Month. Three winners are chosen randomly each week from correct responders.

Pick up a Black History Month ACTIVITIES TO GO packet from the Grab and Go table at your neighborhood Library. Children, adults, and families can learn more about music in African American history with craft instructions and supplies, coloring sheets, and puzzles.
