Celebrating Black History Month in Youth Services

Upstairs in Youth Services we have several activities and displays in honor of Black History Month!  In February, we remember important people and events throughout history that have helped shape our nation today.

Our non-fiction display this month, which is located over by the computer stations, features informational texts and biographies that highlight the accomplishments and contributions of African-American figures.  The books cover the timeline of the African diaspora, ranging from historical to current events.

All along our non-fiction stacks are trivia questions about important African-American pioneers.   Do you know the name of the young girl who was the first to attend an integrated school?  Who was the first African American to win an Academy Award?

Over by the magazines everyone is invited to share their dream in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s ground-breaking speech.  Drop by the Youth Services Desk for a post-it note!

Lend us a hand in creating our Unity Wreath!  Write your name on and decorate one of the handprint cut-outs to display on our wreath over on the glass balcony door. 


Come by and join us in our celebration! We look forward to seeing you!
