Please make plans to attend this year's Juneteenth Celebration on
June 20th noon to 4:00.  This event will be hosted by the NAACP and Midtown
Carnegie Branch Library.  The event will be held at the Midtown Library
397 E. Central St. in the parking lot.  At 1:30 we will pause for a moment of silence and prayer to remember the 9 victims of the Charleston S.C. massacre.  We will celebrate the historical day of Juneteenth but we will remember the latest lives lost in the struggle for equality and peaceful coexistence in our nation.  Join us for this free family friendly event.
  If it rains the event will be held inside the library....rain or shine the event will be held.
