Chappaqua School Honors Black History Month

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. - Librarians at Seven Bridges Middle School have arranged a book display that will remain up for all of February continuing a celebration of Black History Month in Chappaqua.

Tying in with Black History Month's 2012 theme of "Black Women in American Culture and History," the display consists solely of books about women. Featured in the display are works about Harriet Tubman, Coretta Scott King, Michelle Obama, Ella Fitzgerald and more.

With the books located at the entrance of the library, the display is hard to miss.

"The kids have looked at it, some have taken out books, some question it," said library assistant Jane Carlson. "We have quite a few readers in this school. They’re really good; they love coming here."

Carlson felt it was necessary to include such a display in the school as other time-consuming lesson plans may not allow teachers to focus on Black History Month as much as they would like.

The Seven Bridges PTA also contributed a Black History Month display of its own to the library. Every month the PTA arranges a display relevant to the month. Along with Black History Month, February's display recognized Valentine's Day and Presidents Day.
