First African American Librarian in Clearwater Writes a Book

Christine Wigfall Morris, the first black librarian in Clearwater, Florida, is writing her memoirs. I bet that's going to be an interesting read. The article relates one of her recollections from the 1960s:

"A little white girl walked in the library and she said to me, she says, 'Is this the library for me too?,'" Morris said. "I said, 'Yes, it's for all races.' I said, 'Come and join us.'"
