Home Community Calendar 'BREAK FREE FROM TV'



Library supporters are inviting the public to the Enid M. Baa Library courtyard at 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 21, to participate in the activities of "Break Free From TV."
On the program will be Margaret Epps, demonstrating games that she learned from children in Lesotho; calypsonian Dr. Hollis "Chalkdust" Liverpool; Laura Moorhead, teaching everyone how to make johnnycakes with a recipe right out of her book that can be found on the shelf in the library; storyteller and musician Glenn "Kwabena" Davis; Tulip Fleming; and Gilbert Sprauve.
Statistics show that the average American family watches more than four hours of TV a day. An American child between the age of two to 17 watches an average of 19 hours, 40 minutes of TV per week.
The Friends of the St. Thomas Public Libraries and the V.I. Division of Libraries are sponsoring this one activity at the beginning of the No TV Week to inspire families and individuals to actively seek out other diversions. For more information see the Source article in Community/Other, or call director Sharlene Harris of the division at 774-3407.
