Adult Health Awareness Program (In-Person)
Your AARLCC library is hosting a health and wellness program. When most people think of health and wellness, chances are the public library is not the first thing that comes to mind. However, over the past few years, public libraries have been playing an increasing role in supporting health and wellness literacy, health-themed, cancer awareness, and movement-based programs in our local communities. Libraries are focused on providing health education and do not aim to replace more traditional venues for medical care or fitness. We seek to work with local and regional partners to ensure the wellbeing of their communities. Seniors and younger adults are welcome.
About the African American Research Library and Cultural Center
The Broward County African American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC) is located in the Sistrunk community, one of the oldest historically Black communities named for one of Fort Lauderdale’s first Black physicians. Opening to the public on October 26, 2002, AARLCC became the third public library of its kind in the United States dedicated to the study of Black history and culture. The 60,000 square-foot Center serves as a repository of materials related to the local, national, and international voices of the African diaspora with more than 85,000 books, manuscripts, artifacts, framed art, print, photography, audiovisual, and documents held in our Adult Services Section and Special Collections. The Youth Services Section features a special collection of Coretta Scott King Award books and the Ashley Bryan Art Collection from illustrators of African Descent. AARLCC also features a 5,000 sq. ft. museum, a 300-seat state-of-the-art theatre, and a Computer Training Center.
