TBT: Black History Month Continues

Black History Month began February 1 and ends March 1. Continue to explore Black History in our area by visiting jocohistory.org. There you will find historical photographs and maps documenting the people, places and organizations of Johnson County. 

Johnson County Library also has so many resources it might be hard to choose which to read, listen to, or participate in, so it’s good we get to celebrate all month long.
