A New Perspective on Black History Month

February is Black History Month. It’s a time to consider the lives of African Americans throughout US history and today.  What does this mean for you and the library?  We’ve added materials to our collection to support learning about the social, historical and cultural experiences of black Americans.  This means reaching beyond the traditional to offer a viewpoint you might not have considered before with graphic novels, CD’s, DVDs, and more. We’ve also got a display of quotes outside the library that can really get you thinking about your role in in the developing history of our culture as Americans from all different backgrounds. Come take a look and find your perspective.
