Library offering special programs during Family History Month
Cowboy Calvin Sims will headline Family History Month at the Wesley Chapel-William C. Brown Library during October.
During a 45-minute presentation on Oct. 14, Sims will share unforgettable stories about positive African-American role models from the American West. The program starts at 1 p.m.
Branch manager Doris Wells said participants will also be able to view other sights and sounds of heritage and browse through a special exhibit of family-related books.
The Sims presentation is one of four special programs planned at the library that will focus on family, community and culture.
On Oct. 5 at 4:00 p.m., school-age children and parents are invited to create a family tree and begin their genealogical search.
On Oct. 12 there will be a how-to-session for families. Space is limited. Call the library at 404-286-6980 to register for these two programs.
The Family History Month programs wrap up with a salute to the African-American Storytelling tradition on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 7:00 p.m. LaDoris Bias-Davis, a local storyteller, will entertain and enlighten participants with stories from her own family and some collected as part of the Scottdale Heritage Project.
