Welcome!! We're glad you decided to join us on this beautiful Monday, February 27th to celebrate the 23rd Annual African American Read-In sponsored by the Black Caucus of the NCTE.

We meet in the library annually to explore literature written by and about African Americans. If you did not bring your favorite book to share, you can simply browse the displays and find something that appeals to you. We hope your enjoy our celebration of literature!
