February is Black History Month!

Did you know that the American Library Association has a special award given ”to outstanding African American authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults that demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values”?  It’s called the Coretta Scott King Award – and we have many of these titles available to borrow from our library-media center!
