Social Justice Story Time And Scavenger Hunt
Children begin to categorize people based on race, gender and social status at a very young age to make sense of the world around them. Parents may not feel comfortable talking to their child about social justice in public situations or know where to start. Reading books about tolerance and diversity is a perfect way to start this conversation. Social Justice Storytime is a 45 minute program that features age-appropriate books with a social justice theme and includes a discussion time and related craft. This program will be held on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. in the Main Library Multipurpose room. This a drop-ion program for all ages, so no registration is required.
Participate in Social Justice Month by searching the children’s area of the Library for signs showing Americans of color who have impacted history. Scavenger Hunt signs will include a photograph and short biography. Enter your completed scavenger hunt sheet in a drawing for a prize. Pick up a scavenger hunt entry form at the Children’s and Youth Services desk. No registration is required.
