Franklin Avenue Library
A special guest from the Blank Park Zoo (and several animal friends) will visit the library to explain some of the weird and wondrous things that animals can do. Thank you to the Friends of the Franklin Avenue Library for sponsoring this program.
Stop by the library between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for some self-guided activities celebrating everyone's favorite author's birthday. There will be activity sheets, a craft, and a scavenger hunt.
Drake University Associate Professor of History Curt M. Cardwell will discuss the historic Selma to Montgomery March, which took place fifty years ago in March. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led the march through Alabama to bring attention to the many discriminatory practices used to disenfranchise black citizens.
