City of Carlsbad Library Features Black History Month

City+of+Carlsbad+Library+Features+Black+History+Month

Carlsbad CA— February is Black History Month and it’s also National Library Lovers Month, so the Carlsbad City Library is celebrating with some interesting displays and resources.
For Black History Month:

  • Each library facility is featuring special displays with historical and contemporary reading materials highlighting the black experience and excellence.
  • You can also find a broad range of eResources like the Black Freedom Historical Records, which are primary source documents that illuminate the challenges and triumphs the African American community has experienced in the pursuit of equality.
  • The library is also offering a “Love is in the Air” collection of reading recommendations with emotional or romantic stories that reflect the values and dreams of black culture.
  • A Virtual Tween Scene gathering on Feb. 7 will celebrate Black History Month and National Inventor’s Day by exploring the science of electricity and the contributions of Lewis Howard Latimer, the innovative African American genius behind both Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. The light bulb and the telephone would have not been invented without him.

For National Library Lovers Month:

  • The library is inviting community members to share why you love the library by filling out paper hearts at any desk at the city’s three library facilities.
  • When you turn in the heart, you’ll receive a Hershey’s kiss.
  • The hearts will be displayed in all library facilities throughout the month.
