Who Was? A Story Time

Martin Luther King, Jr

Based on the Who Was Story Time series, on the second Saturday of the month a middle or high-school student will transform into a famous African American and lead a story hour.

This year the Cedar Rapids Public Library is partnering with the African American Museum of Iowa to provide a collaborative story time highlighting and celebrating local and national African American historical and contemporary figures. Over the span of the entire year, there will be creative projects, musical activities and more. This program is most beneficial for children between the ages of 6-12 years old. All are welcome.

This program is sponsored by The Academy for Scholastic and Personal Success.
