Black History Month LogoBlack history was first celebrated during a week in February 1926 that encompassed the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. The celebration was expanded to a month in 1976, and President Ford urged Americans to “honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Borrow a book or movie to learn more about Black history and culture.

Beautify the barriersEvery year since 2021, local artists painted murals on the line of concrete "jersey" barriers near the exit of our parking lot, transforming them into fabulous artwork! We are again seeking artists to repaint the barriers with new designs that tie into 2024's Summer Learning Program theme, "Adventure Begins at Your Library."  Download an application or pick one up at the library to paint a barrier this year.
