Celebrate the African American Heritage!

 (C) 2014 http://static.tumblr.com/oebi3un/E9Sm11is4/wicb_jazz.jpg

This year, the Maud Marks Library has decided to go BIG in celebrating the African American Heritage.  How big?  Jazz Education, Inc. will be here on Friday at 1 PM to play some jazz music perfect for dancing.  Afterwards, we'll make some African masks, jazz collages, and even work together to turn one wall in the children's section into a giant Freedom Quilt.  While working on our projects, we'll munch on food important to African American history.  Join us as we celebrate the contributions of the African American culture.

The Legendary Fats Waller voted #1 Harlem Renaissance Musician 2013!

The Bear Creek community has voted Fats Waller as their favorite Harlem Renaissance musician at our 6th Annual Harlem Renaissance Party!  We danced and jumped and all around boogied to the tunes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Fats Waller.  After a good spread of tunes representing our nominees for the year the families voted on which performing artist tickled their toes the most.  The votes were close.  Ella came in as runner up with 26 votes and Fats Waller won with 27 votes!  Hope you can join us next year!    For more on Fats Waller click read more.

To celebrate Black Hisory Month, B.O.L.T (Board of Library Teens) sponsored "The Jazz Cafe."  This program was a huge hit with 45 adults, teens and children attending. While sampling food from African American history cookbooks, families listened to jazz presented by the Thomas Band. Since everyone had such a lovely time last night, I have complied a list of materials that you can share with your family.
