Readers are Leaders celebrate Black History Month with Cultural Evening

This evening, Tuesday, February 19, the "Readers are Leaders" Club will be presenting a cultural evening to celebrate Black History Month in song, poetry, and dance at the Philipsburg Jubilee Library’s lobby at 5:30 pm.


"Readers are Leaders" is a reading program organized and supported by the Philipsburg Jubilee Library and the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise. The goal is to promote literacy specifically among high school students and to encourage readers to express their thoughts, feelings and ideas through writing. The participants are challenged to read a number of books and submit reports about the books they read.

The recently elected Readers are Leaders board has been working hard to make this event an exciting one. Snack and drinks will be available to the audience members directly after the presentation.

Students interested in joining the Readers are Leaders can contact the Philipsburg Jubilee Library at 542-2970 or join their FaceBook page at  for more information.
