B(L)ACK to the Future with I.C. Norcom High School

February 25, 2021 @ 9:30 am - March 2, 2021 @ 2:30 pm

The Library team will partner with the English department for “B(L)ACK to the Future 2021″. Students will rotate through two virtual stations, including a digital scavenger hunt to familiarize students with culturally relevant selections featured in our Mackin eBook collection and a digital breakout to encourage and expose students to contemporary Black authors in a race against the clock mystery.  

*Both stations will be engaging, informative and offer friendly competition to encourage participation!
