Black History Month Celebration at Bentonville Library
February 18, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join BPL, Mayor Stephanie Orman, the NWA Area Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Magician Tommy Terrific in celebrating the history and achievements of Black Americans.
Join Bentonville Public Library for a Black History Month celebration! At 11AM, Mayor Stephanie Orman will share a Proclamation celebrating Black History Month. Next, enjoy storytime and a craft in the Children’s Library presented in partnership with the Northwest Arkansas Area Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
At 12PM, magician Tommy Terrific will present a magic show in the Walmart Community Room based on the African-American scientist and inventor, George Washington Carver. The show will feature magic tricks related to his promotion of peanuts, sweet potatoes and much, much more. This show does not contain any actual peanut products, and it is great educational entertainment for children of all ages.
Due to limited capacity in the Library’s Walmart Community Room, free tickets are required for each person attending Tommy Terrific’s magic show. Tickets can be picked up at the BPL Children’s Desk beginning at 9AM the day of the event on a first-come, first-serve basis.
All attendees must be present to pick up tickets.
