We’ll explore the sheer beauty of how differences play a part in life’s magnificent tapestry. Whether it be in nature, people, places, or things, differences are the rainbow colors, the delectable spices, and the intriguing threads that bind our world together. We’ll investigate how the interlocking landscape of cultures, seasons, plants, animals, space and etc., are universally connected. We will also continue the Curiosity segments Did You Know? and Curiosity Corner.
Hosted by Fannie Lou Hamer Library.
Join the Fannie Lou Hamer Library as we expand our Global Diversity series and debut our Better Together sub-series.
The earth, the trees, the oceans, the animals, and the billions of human beings living on this planet are all connected in so many ways. We have a responsibility, together, to respect and care for our home, and those that share this beautiful place with us.
Differences make our world amazingly beautiful.

Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules in the library. No running allowed. And you must be quiet. But when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. There aren’t any rules about lions in the library. And, as it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting. His big feet are quiet on the library floor. He makes a comfy backrest for the children at story hour. And he never roars in the library, at least not anymore. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how.
