Librarian Michael Davis gives a little of the history of Juneteenth, an annual holiday that celebrates the day word of emancipation finally reached Texas.
Celebrate Juneteenth at a special evening Read-In. Members of the Aspiring Writers Circle and library staff will present original works and letters from slaves that evoke the strength, courage, and freedom that Juneteenth represents.
This multimedia event will be held on Thursday, June 19 at 6:30 p.m. in Room A-5, located on the lower level.
