To honor Dr. King on January 17, The Johnson County Library System and Shepherd’s Center Central’s Coming of Age/RSVP Johnson County initiative have come together. Informing and educating ourselves, our children and grandchildren is vital to understanding the legacy and passion of this brave man who ultimately lost his life in the struggle. In so doing, we believe that we might also be re-inspired to give more of our time and talents to our friends, neighbors and communities. We are inviting everyone in Johnson County and beyond to join us!
Please see the following list of outstanding books and DVD’s for all ages (click continue reading). Parents and grandparents will enjoy the selected works and those who lived through these turbulent times will personally remember much of what they read and see. In addition, sharing the books and DVD’s created for younger children can be a perfect opportunity to also add one’s personal memories and perspective to the events of that era. Long before the printed word, the oral history was the primary way these priceless stories were passed from one generation to another.
Won't you join us in taking the opportunity to “Borrow a Book or DVD” to help increase knowledge, understanding and awareness of this pivotal time in our history? Sharing one’s own perspective from one’s own life’s experience will make the learning all the more exciting. How about a special book group? How about preparing to truly enjoy the experiences which will be available during Black History Month in February? (see "quilters" link)
Click here www.jocolibrary.org/findagoodbook for details about how to reserve and borrow these special works AND www.comingofage.org/kansascity to learn more about the opportunities through the Johnson County Libraries and Coming of Age/RSVP Johnson County.
