Civic Awareness Week 1
Happy Fourth of July!

Civic awareness is about being a part of the whole, the diversity that comes together to create a community. Get involved by volunteering, marching or learning about our history.  The three books featured this week explore our shared history and the foundation of the United States of America, our amazing melting pot.

Gittel's Journey: An Ellis Island Story follows the story of a nine-year old girl's immigration to America.

Learn about an influential fighter for women's and civil rights in Eleanor Roosevelt, Fighter for Justice: Her Impact on the Civil Rights Movement, the White House, and the World.

Explore the history of the Statue of Liberty in Her Right Foot.

Learn more about the Statue of Liberty with this fun video from Dave Eggers, author of Her Right Foot.

Celebrate the Fourth of July with this holiday-themed word scramble.
