Celebrate Black History Month

February is, among other things, Black History Month.  We like to celebrate here at the Maud Marks Library with a huge festival!  Join us this Friday, February 10, 1-4 PM for our Black History month festival.  AfroTones and Jazz Education, Inc. will be here to present the history of music from the drums of the motherland to the jazz of today.  We will have several story times including The Patchwork Quilt by Bettye Stroud.  We will be coloring and piecing together a giant Freedom quilt as well as making other crafts.  Of course, the International Cafe will be open as well with a taste of Africa and the Southern U.S. inspired by life on the plantations.

Join us as we learn more about the African American culture and history of our own country!
