Each month in 2019, the Genesee District Library will highlight four significant Americans. On the digital displays at each of our branches, we will present a photo of a compelling U.S. citizen and the question, “Do you know this American?” Some of the faces may be familiar and some may not; and that’s okay. This is your opportunity to learn about a diverse group of Americans who have helped to shape and mold the country we live in today. 

You can visit thegdl.org/american and read about each featured person every month. If you want to know more, links will be provided to additional materials that you can borrow from our collection.  Check out the digital display in our branches each month for new faces. If you miss a month, you can see them all here. Our country is made up of a vast collection of people, beliefs, and points of view.  We hope that this will provide an opportunity for our library patrons to learn more about our country, one another, and our Diverse Perspectives.​
