North Avondale Library Hosting Boots, Books and Cowboys Event July 24

 Cowboys, Boots & Books at North Avondale Library in February 2017. 
Come learn about the life of cowboys and donate free books for youth at North Avondale Branch Library's Boots, Books & Cowboys on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.

The program, to be held from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., is designed to collect books for a free book giveaway that will allow youth to build their personal home libraries, said organizer Todd Morris.

“Our hope is to inspire children to see past their current surroundings through books and believe they can be whatever they want to be...including a cowboy or cowgirl,” Morris said.

Morris will be accompanied by other black cowboys who will share history, knowledge, and even show of some of their favorite horses with event goers. Supporters are asked to bring new or gently used, up-to-date books to donate for young readers.

This free event will have music, fun, and activities for the entire family to enjoy while learning.

“Join us in investing in our community and combating the pipeline to prison through literacy,” Morris said.

North Avondale Library was a recipient of a BPL Board of Trustees Innovative and Cool Award for program it hosted in February 2017 called Cowboys, Boots & Books.
