Centennial College observes Black History Month

Centennial students have been busy in the library this month. Not because exams or essays are due, but to learn more about black history, or to just look for a good read from their favourite black author.

Every year Centennial College’s campus on Morningside Drive honours Black History Month with a prominent book display just inside the main entrance of the library.

“It’s always a popular attraction,” librarian Sonia Hayes said. “We try to have a book from every area: music, fiction, theatre….”

Nearly 60 books occupy the current display created by Sheila Ruth, a coordinator at the library. But these books won’t stay on display long.

“A lot have already been taken out,” Hayes said. “We’re always adding more and more.”
