February is National Black History Month! Celebrate the cultural contributions, achievements, and extraordinary lives that African Americans have given and lead in our country this month by visiting the library to check out the books that we have to offer on Black History. There are multiple book displays around the library for readers of all ages to browse and check-out.
In the Children’s Room, visit our special display of books where you can read books such as:
