I have a dream contest

The "I Have A Dream" contest was held at the Juanita E. Thornton Shepherd Park Library on January 12, 2011.

On behalf of the Juanita E. Thornton/Shepherd Park Library, and its wonderful staff, we would like to extend a congratulations to all of the participants; Steven Silver, Brett Busch, and Rachael McPherson.

All participants are winners in our eyes and we appreciate the courage it took and the willingness to support the library in its efforts to provide programs.  The overall winner was Brett Busch who was also the youngest at age 6. He rapped his dream into our hearts, with his mom supporting and supplying him with the beats he needed to rock the mic . We are also grateful for Mr. Phillip House who provided us with musical selections from the piano.

The Black Voices Book Club Met on December 20, 2010 to discuss Walter Mosley's novel, "Devil In A Blue Dress". This was the 15th novel by a black author the Club has read. This meeting was special because the day was not just for book discussion but also for the first Christmas party ever celebrated by the Club.

Members started arriving half an hour early at Juanita E. Thornton/Shepherd Park Library with all kinds of food and beverages, ready to have a good time. Even some library patrons who are not members of the Club joined the celebration. Despite all the fun, the book discussion went on well. It was an evening to be remembered.
