Throughout February, our library branches will be hosting open mic events, author visits, storytimes, and book discussions to take part in the National African American Read-In and celebrate Black History Month. The event is the first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature.
By participating in this event, we are joining many professional and community organizations, schools, churches, bookstores, libraries and interested individuals nationwide. The National African American Read-In was established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) in efforts to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month.
Come and join us at these programs to celebrate Black History and take part in the African American Read-In!
All programs are free and open to the public.
