February is Black History Month

Come celebrate Black History Month at the Glencoe Public Library. The Glencoe Historical Society is presenting an exhibit that highlights how Glencoe’s black community began and developed, including the history of the first African-Americans in the schools, black elected public officials, and the story of Glencoe’s beaches. This exhibit is being held upstairs in the Hammond Room. More information can be found at the Historical Society's website. You can also see pictures here.

Also at the Library are underground railroad quilt code squares created by 6th graders at Central School. These reproductions can be found in the display cases in the library. See pictures here!

We also have a display of African-American themed films in the Hammond room for you to browse and check out! Please come join us.
