Black History Month & Other Celebrations at the Library

The library recognizes monthly celebrations to increase awareness of important issues and celebrate diversity by displaying books and other materials related to these topics. These collections can be found on our  second floor display shelves and the DVD displays on the first floor.

February is National Library Lover’s month, so come to the Thigpen Library and celebrate with us! Read one of our Browsing books for fun or check out one of our popular movies on DVD; curl up with one our graphic novels; visit our Silent Study room for a quiet place to study for that big test.

Library Lover's Month

To celebrate Black History Month, read the book, Hidden Figures:  The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Who Helped Win the Space Race or check out the movie! American Heart month is celebrated in February as well.  Do you know the symptoms of a heart attack or stroke?  Read up on the subject in one of our American Heart Month display books.

Some of our past monthly displays have been about LGBTQ history, Autism, Aids Awareness, and Native Americans.  Be on the lookout for a Women’s History month display in March. Don’t just rely on calendars to tell you what month it is; take a look at our displays for inspiration on your next great read or movie.
