America I Am

Shaw (Watha T. Daniel) Library

America I Am

February is a busy time in the children's room.  Almost every child in the District has a report to do for black history month. 

To make the experience even more rewarding, we are offering free tickets to the National Geographic Museum's exhibit "America I Am."  It features photographs and artifacts from slavery to the civil rights movement and beyond.

When your child checks out a book on black history at the Shaw Library during the month of February, he/she will be given a coupon good for one free children's admission plus one half-price ($6) adult ticket.  Children will also be eligible to enter a drawing for a beautiful National Geographic children's atlas.

Selected photography featuring local black history themes can also be seen for free in the lobby of the Martin Luther King Jr. Library.
