We the People Bookshelf


A small audience gathered at EHFPL on Wednesday, April 23rd to see the compelling story of Elizabeth Keckly as depicted by Stephanie Jackson and directed by Kandie Carle (both pictured here.) This presentation of "They Called Me Lizzie...from slavery to the White House" was sponsored by the library in order to highlight the library's receipt of a special grant from the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The 'We the People Bookshelf' provides grant recipients with a collection of books based on an annual theme. The theme of this year's bookshelf is 'Created Equal' and we were thrilled to receive 17 wonderful new books. Some books will be displayed in the children's area of the library (downstairs), while others, including four titles in Spanish, will be shelved in the young adult area (upstairs.)
