Celebrate John F. Kennedy's 100th Birthday this Summer
The MBLC has partnered with the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum for the centennial celebration of President Kennedy's 100th birthday. MBLC has worked with the JFK Library and Museum to create summer reading materials and online toolkits that acknowledge the continuing impact that President Kennedy has had on this country and the world. This partnership gives Massachusetts libraries have the opportunity to join in on a much larger, ongoing celebration happening in Massachusetts and across the country.
The materials include 2 posters, one featuring Jacqueline Kennedy reading with Caroline Kennedy, and another featuring a young Senator Kennedy reading, 2 book lists, one with children's books recommended by Rose Kennedy, and another with books that were sent to Peace Corps members in book lockers, and book marks that feature 10 of JFK's most memorable and inspirational quotes. The materials can be viewed in PDF form below.
The three online toolkits for children, teens, and adults will be posted on the MBLC Public Portal soon. We will update this site when they are available.
