Join us for a fun-filled week of educational programming, as we explore true and inspiring stories of achievement. In collaboration with Sweet Blackberry® and local artists, the Library will offer morning and afternoon activities centered on aviation, invention, dance, and artmaking. These will complement short film screenings. And don’t forget to explore the Mapparium®—it’s free all day for everyone 17 and younger!

Tuesday 2/18 program highlight: Dancing in the Light

Hear the motivational story of Janet Collins (1917–2003), the first African American prima ballerina. Then, inspired by Janet’s story, try a fun dance routine with local guest educators inspired by Janet’s story.
