In February, we celebrate Black History Month, and here at BWG Library, we have an exciting array of events planned to honour its significance and recognize the remarkable contributions of Black men and women, both in our local community and globally!
We are kicking things off with our new art exhibit from Making Change, featuring the works of local Black youth. Join us for the grand opening celebration in the Zima Room on Thursday, February 1, from 6-8 p.m. The works will be on display until February 11, after which they will be headed to the MacLaren Art Centre in Barrie until the end of the month.
Check out all our Black History Month events happening here.
