Black History Month Storytime
Join Decorah Public Library for a storytime with stretches, scarves, and shaker eggs. This storytime will highlight books by Black creators. A craft inspired by a contemporary Black children’s book illustrator will be available to participants afterwards. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
No registration required. Sponsored by Friends of the Decorah Public Library

This will be an active program with about 20 minutes of stories, stretches, and rhymes followed by time and space for unstructured play and caregiver socialization. The Black History Month content will be age appropriate to toddlers and will involve highlighting Black creators, rather than talking explicitly about race. (But if you’re looking for resources for such conversations we are happy to help.) We understand that in a multi-age setting that attention spans will vary and welcome you to participate at the level that feels appropriate. Covid-19 considerations: For this indoor storytime we will do rhymes, rhythms, and games instead of songs. The Children’s Librarian will be wearing a mask and masks will be available for others that would prefer to wear one. Please feel free to reach out to Rachael at email@example.com for any additional questions about accessibility, accommodations or logistics.
