The Breckenridge Library will bridge the gap between two continents next month when it hosts an African Safari program by Elizabeth Kahura on Wednesday, Aug. 11, at 11 am.

The program, which is designed for all age groups, will last between 45 minutes and an hour.

Kahura is a native of Kenya in East Africa, but she lives in Texas now. Living in the United States since 1995, she has shared the African beat with audiences of all ages through the African Safari program, according to her biography. As a teacher, storyteller and performer, she strives to educate and engage her audience through storytelling, puppetry, music, language arts, and hands on art projects. Schools, libraries, museums, and festivals have enjoyed her inspirational countenance, displays of African artifacts, and ability to build a bridge of understanding by demonstrating the similarities between cultures and traditions of Africa and United States.

Concepts like the power to dream, character development, and self-empowerment come to life during the performances, according to her program information.

The Breckenridge Library is located at 209 N. Breckenridge Ave. It is open Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. The library is closed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. For more information, call the library at 254-559-5505.
