RED BANK, NJ: The T. Thomas Fortune Cultural Center is proud to take part in the Take Your Child to the Library Day (TYCLD), an international initiative that encourages families everywhere to take their children to their local library.
The Carrie Smiley Fortune Research Library at the Cultural Center offers a diverse selection of children’s books, and we are looking forward to welcoming young people into the space.
When: Saturday, February 1, 2020
Where: T. Thomas Fortune Foundation and Cultural Center, 94 Drs James Parker Boulevard Red Bank
Time: 2:00 PM -4:00pm
TYCLD raises community awareness about the importance of the library in the life of a child.
Lynn Humphrey, who is the Cultural Center’s Research-Archivist-Librarian will engage the children in fun activities to include: creating decorative bookmarks, introducing them to historical figures in graphic novels and to authors like Jaqueline Woodson, who is a favorite among young readers (8 years old and up).
Humphrey, the doting grandmother of three, is active in her community and volunteering for various organizations annually. She is delighted to have this international literacy initiative come to the Cultural Center.
Lynn is a believer in the quote: “Books are the path to the universe.”
