    Library Resource: The BrownBookShelf is promoting an all-ages  summer family read program which looks great.  If you are looking, especially now in light of the George Floyd murder and resulting social protest, to increase the diversity of your reading, this is a good place to start.

    Paid Internship for Black Males: Word is Bond is hosting our paid summer internship for Black boys this summer in spite of everything. The program will be a virtual, work-from-home model where interns will build leadership skills and work to better the community from their laptops and cell phones. We are excited to offer this opportunity for youth in the community to earn money and make a difference during these challenging times. Here is the internship flyer.
