The Toronto Public Library celebrates African Heritage (also known as Black History Month) across the city throughout February. Be sure to browse through their list of offerings here, or find out what’s happening at the North York Central branch.
Visit the Canadian Encyclopedia’s feature article on Black History Month and learn about prominent Canadian figures of African heritage.
This week the library works with Gr. 12 Data Management on their statistical analyses project and next week we will see Gr. 9 French for their study of former French colonies. Did you know we have an encyclopédie française? Check out Universalis here.
Both Data Management and French classes will be using CultureGrams, a great multimedia resource with profiles for the countries of the world. See the new link in our list of databases and view videos and images from around the world.
