freedom-riders-cover.pngJoin the Milwaukee Public Library and America's Black Holocaust Museum (ABHM) for films and discussions on the past, present and future of civil rights in America. The Created Equal Film Series uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion of America's civil rights history.

Freedom Riders

The Freedom Rides of 1961 were a pivotal moment in the long Civil Rights struggle that redefined America. Based on Raymond Arsenault's recent book, this documentary film offers an inside look at the brave band of activists who challenged segregation in the Deep South.


Join us Monday, May 12th at 5:15 p.m. at Bay View Library for the film followed by a discussion facilitated by Dr. Russell Brooker of ABHM.

The Created Equal film series is made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative and in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.

Last Week For Teacher In The Library This Year

| No TrackBacks

Teacher in the library.jpgThis is the last week for the regularly scheduled Teacher in the Library program in 2013. This program will temporarily cease over the holidays, so take advantage of this program this week. In case you haven't heard about this wonderful service, here are the facts.

Teachers are available at selected libraries during after school hours from September-June to assist both students and parents with academic support and encouragement. Children under 8 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Check out the library's event calendar for information on times and locations.

Teachers will help students:
• focus
• use appropriate learning strategies
• find the best resources for completing their homework assignments
• find books appropriate for their reading level

Teachers will help parents:
• learn how to help their children at home with school assignments
• by answering questions they have regarding their child's homework
