Program Description

Author's Visit with Natasha Tarpley

Join us at Sheridan Elementary School for an author's visit with acclaimed children's book author, Natasha Anatasia Tarpley. With titles I Love My Hair, The Me I Choose to Be, Keyana Loves Her Family, and newly published Keyana Loves Her Friend, Tarpley's work inspires young readers to be proud of themselves and their natural beauty while empowering them to celebrate who and what they choose to be. 

Beginning February 1, registration for this program can be completed online below, by calling 309.590.6155, or by visiting the Children's Services Desk at the Library and registering in person. Space is limited 15 groups of up to 4 people. During registration, you will be asked to indicate how many people -- up to 4 -- will be in your group.

This event is made possible by a collaboration between Bloomington Public Library, District 87 Schools, Sheridan Elementary School, the Confidently Curly program presented by Project Oz, and the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation's Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP) grant. Through YEP, area high school students delve deeply into the non-profit world and explore the meaning of philanthropy, need, and impact. YEP participants then offer grant funding for youth-focused programs, promote and review grant applications, and select funding recipients.
