MER Library Transforms into Book Cafe for Black History Month

In the Meramec Elementary library, tables adorned with tablecloths and jazz music playing in the background transformed the space into the “Book Cafe.” In honor of Black History Month, each table featured a stack of books by Black authors for students to enjoy. Students were able to browse and read books by these authors. Another group of students watched Superintendent Nisha Patel’s pre-recorded book reading a story on the theme of this month’s activities.
