February is Black History Month, and the Children's Department is planning several big things for the month! The first event is next Tuesday, February 1, 2022 at 4 p.m. Miss Traci is hosting Loving Gee's Bend, a program designed for kids in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. You'll earn about the quilters of Gee's Bend, Alabama and make a paper collage quilt inspired by their work. We are still keeping programs small, so you will need to register to be part of this event. You can sign up online or by phone (205-444-7830) beginning today!
