Program Description

Event Details

Join us on Beanstack in February for our Black History Month Reading Challenge! This month, we challenge you to read one book written by a Black author or illustrated by a Black artist. You can also dive into nonfiction by reading a book about an important moment in Black history or a biography about an influential Black historical figure. Finish the challenge to earn a KCPL fidget pen. Prizes are available for pick-up at any branch library location while supplies last.

Find more details here.



Individuals with disabilities who require accommodation to attend a program at any KCPL facility should contact the ADA Coordinator at least 48 hours prior to the event. Phone: 304-343-4646 ext. 1242 or 1268 Email:
