Black History Month Movies

In honor of Black History Month, come watch these Oscar nominated and winning films featuring African- American actors, writers, and directors; including this year’s nominees for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. We must remember that representation matters.

“We’ve got to keep telling our stories because our experiences are so broad and rich and multifaceted there isn’t just one way to be black...The more stories we share the more reflective we can be of the whole diverse
African-American community.” - Oprah Winfrey

Did you know?

Enjoy working on jigsaw puzzles? 

The library is playing host to the creation of the world's largest jigsaw puzzle--it's 40,000 pieces and split into 10, 4,000 piece parts! This will be a community driven art project. A section at a time, we will have the jigsaw puzzle on the tables upstairs by the paperbacks, allowing any person to sit down and work on it.

When it is entirely finished, the donor plans to then donate the final piece to a facility that can house it. Fully put together, the puzzle will be 6.25 ft. tall and 22.25 ft. long!
