Black History Month 2021
Created by mhplstafflists | 100 items
A collection of materials celebrating the legacy, history, stories and accomplishments of Black / African-American individuals world-wide, including content both old and new. Whether works of fiction by individuals of black heritage or non-fiction materials detailing trials and tribulations, it's our hope at the Medicine Hat Public Library to aid patrons in finding materials to supplement their learning and enhance their self-education during Black History Month. During our temporary closure, library materials can be borrowed through our no-contact pick-up service. Call us at 403-502-8525 to schedule a pick-up.
