Celebrate Black History Month at Your Library

Zora Neale HurstonCelebrate Black History Month with us this February by checking out a book from the library and learning more about the achievements and influence of African Americans throughout history. This month at CCLD's Central Branch, Steele Memorial Library, we have chosen to feature the women of African American history on our second floor book display. Also at Steele, on February 27th at 7pm, we will be showing an abridged version of the PBS documentary series "For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots". The series chronicles the contributions of African American servicemen and women from Revolution to Iraq. Stop by any of the branches of Chemung County Library District this month and learn something new about African American history.
