Palm Beach County Library System Celebrates Black History Month

We will be offering events that honor the heritage, contributions and achievements of the African American community. This national celebration initiated by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, also known as the father of Black History, has its roots in a weeklong observation in 1926. Although we are not able to offer the events in person this year, we invite you to enjoy a wide variety of events accessible online via Zoom. Preregister and join us for these free live events or view the recordings on our digital activities page at
