Good Evening,
Hope everyone is doing well. We wanted to share with everyone some of the ways that the East Lansing Public Library is celebrating Black History Month with the community.

To kick off the month, we sent out a special edition of our Off the Shelf! eNewsletter featuring key programs. https://conta.cc/36rHzNW. One of our LIVE Storytimes featured 7-year-old Mackenzie Smith reading her new book, "My New Normal". Mackenzie also appeared on our latest episode of The Director's Cut podcast with Library Director Kristin Shelley. http://bit.ly/ELPLDirCutMackenzieSmith<https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2FELPLDirCutMackenzieSmith%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1TP8eJ4ODS1SDEiOWJQYtbeGJAKNPUaKQhujozlLPzoNZqMd7ceFI1PoU&h=AT2_7qvHUYK7jdmIjPVE1ssDA6WPIg-yqlyeNBuIPjw59qE8n8DEh-dXStoRJC4fFumFsGcNRxQN6CKOHpX7QWcueJpc21STlw0WhpPcRrH8ZJRzPl8ETWzDvN-UWCXXvQ&__tn__=-UK-R&c[0]=AT1Rtk8uJF7PXILMggbRrLlMycZ_qSkj9cjNWtX0Y_GK_s7mbJraARQg3VuEKyG8Pk-F9gNtKMw3V8_Oht3N39fss64PDkYIYkd_1LsVPqnXtwTWpyThgEqnz0IP6HiZ3kdCae5zBo07UQpDUMnzUCQdbny-ueoSHSCyxsD5Zh-8ib_c_8GGDp7m8hN-kHFuwscIQeE>

Mid-month, we sent out another edition of our Off the Shelf! eNewsletter with additional programs continuing the celebration,
https://conta.cc/37iK3yq. In this edition, we highlighted a special presentation, "Deeper Than Skin" with Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway. These two will also appear on another episode of The Director's Cut podcast with Library Director Kristin Shelley to air later in the month. To view other episodes of our podcast, visit elplibrary.podbean.com.

Lastly, to bring everything together, a special page dedicated to Black History Month programming and services was created on the library's website, elpl.org/celebrate/

Thank you and we hope you enjoy.
