Zion to Receive 'Created Equal' Bookshelf

On Friday, I received an e-mail with the good new that Zion has been chosen to receive a 'Created Equal' bookshelf from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The bookshelf is made up of 21 books (4 in Spanish) that center around the theme of 'created equal'. The books have a particular emphasis on Abraham Lincoln in recognition of the 200 anniversary of Lincoln's birth. Check out the list here. Zion is one of 3,000 libraries nationwide to win the bookshelf so this is a huge honor for us. By using the books in our classes and in other activities, we will get a chance to talk about what it means to be equal in America. Watch for announcements about coming activities centered around the 'Created Equal' bookshelf!
