All are invited to participate in Union County Public Library's Black History Month events and activities. The month-long celebration will feature virtual programming, take-home crafts, and a literary magazine. The theme for this year is The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity.
"Although we are currently living through a pandemic, we worked hard to offer programs and activities that focus on the contributions and celebrate the lives of African Americans," said Gypsy Houston, Chair of the Black History Month Committee.
Stop by any Union County Public Library location during the month of February and pick up a free take-home kit to make an age-appropriate bookmark.
Thank you to all writers, artists, and poets who submitted their work to be a part of Movement, our new Black History Month literary magazine. Each contributor to the magazine had a unique interpretation of the 2021 theme, The Black Family. View the digital Movement magazine here. The magazine will be available in print at each library location at a later date.
