Black History Month at North Channel

traffic lightTo help us celebrate Black History Month at North Channel Library, we will have a children's craft to help us learn about a talented African American Inventor.
Garrett Morgan invented the traffic light in 1923. His other inventions included hair cream, hair dye, hair straightening comb, gas mask, and a belt fastener for a sewing machine. 
Join us today, February 14th at 4:30 PM in the Public Meeting Room to make your own traffic light, enjoy a light snack, and play a fun game of Red light, Green light. 

Family Learning Space @ North Channel

In this area you will find new building blocks that will encourage children to use their imaginations, creativity, and problem solving skills. Also purchased was a new item, a kitchen, that will help children benefit from pretend play to boost their social and emotional development.
