Broward County Library’s Black History Month Happenings

history

Throughout February, Broward County Library will host events and programs in honor of Black History Month. From film screenings to festivals, there will be fun, free events for all ages.

Another great way to celebrate Black History Month is with a visit to the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC), located on Fort Lauderdale’s historic Sistrunk Boulevard. AARLCC provides our community with the vast resources necessary to educate this generation and future generations about the rich and colorful African, African-American and Caribbean heritages, cultures and histories.

This 60,000-square-foot facility, built in the heart of one of Broward’s historically black communities, houses more than 85,000 books, manuscripts, artifacts and documents. In addition to these resources, it features permanent and traveling exhibits, a 300-seat state-of-the-art auditorium and a events, classes and programs for all ages.

AARLCC is open on Monday and Wednesday from Noon to 8PM and Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10AM to 6PM. For more information, please call 954-357-6282.
