Freeman Teens: Celebrating African American History Month

Jack JohnsonJoin us in the Teen Zone on Tuesday, February 15 @ 4:30 pm for an Academy Award-winning documentary movie about two famous African American boxers. 

Did you know that the first African American World Heavyweight Champion was originally from Galveston, TX?  Jack Johnson won the title in 1908.  After losing the title in 1915, it took over twenty years for another African American boxer to claim it: Joe Lewis in 1937.  Joe Lewis has the record for holding the title longer (over 11 years) than anyone else in boxing history. Come watch the movie, enjoy snacks, and learn more about African American history and sports history.

Wonderful Wednesday on February 16

Join us for a special Wonderful Wednesday on February 16 at 4:30 pm.  This afterschool program is held twice a month on the first and third Wednesdays.  It is designed for school-age children five to twelve years old.  The first Wednesday is usually movie day.  The third Wednesday is a craft or special program day.  This Wednesday we'll be having a D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything And Read) program for children.  This program encourages children to read and talk about what books they are reading.   The children can grab some snacks, pick up some cool bookmarks, and get some tips from the librarians about what to read next!  The children will need a ticket for this program.  They are free and available at the Kids Information Desk starting thirty minutes before the program.
