Sponsored by The Friends of the Marina Library; join us as we celebrate people of color! One month isn’t enough time to explore the wide range of stories that exist but we intend to try. At the beginning of the The Friends of the Marina Library's Little Kid Block Party, a local dad from Families of Color Monterey County and Dads of Monterey County will read a few specially selected kids' books featuring protagonists of color.
