A Celebration of Juneteenth (Central Square)

Join us at the Central Square Branch for a celebration of Juneteenth! This outdoor event will feature storyteller Valerie Stephens followed by the Afro-pop and Moz-Jazz sounds of the Albino Mbie Band. We will provide sidewalk chalk, crafts, and cupcakes. This event is for all ages and we welcome everyone to join! 

Juneteenth honors June 19, 1865, the day that the news of the Emancipation Proclamation reached Galveston, Texas, marking the end to slavery in the United States. Juneteenth is a time to gather as a community. Learn more about Juneteenth
