Hi everyone,

This week's shoutout goes to our newest federal holiday, Juneteenth. I know many of you are just getting back into the swing of what things may look like for the summer, so this is not in any way meant to suggest you should be doing these particular programs, but I did want to send a few links to big library systems that have had more time to be open and are doing some pretty interesting programming around Juneteenth. These could be a list of resources to bookmark for next year!

Also, Juneteenth Oregon,<https://traveloregon.com/things-to-do/events/culture-heritage-events/juneteenth-oregon-celebration/> started in 1945 by Clara Peoples, is streaming virtually from Portland tomorrow.

Enjoy the holiday!
