Wall Of Tolerance

Laredo Public Library
Public Service Announcement Campaign
“Wall of Tolerance Seeks Educators to Teach Tolerance”

                        Start Date:     April 23 2010         Kill Date: May 4, 2010
                                                                                                7:00 p.m.


The Laredo Public Library hopes that the Wall of Tolerance Center & Museum will be one step to teaching about the consequences of intolerance and indifference.

The Wall of Tolerance Center & Museum will be more than just pictures and memorabilia. The display will have educational lessons that will be included in the nine-month curriculum that accompanies the exhibit.

The classes and discussion will foster a conscience of awareness and social responsibility toward eliminating acts of violence, prejudice and discrimination against men, women and children in our community, across our nation and throughout our world.

 Currently, many lessons are being taught by United I.S.D. teachers; however, the curriculum is open to teachers of all districts and educational institutions who wish to participate. 

An introductory lesson for anyone who wishes to participate will be held on Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 6:30 PM.  

Anyone wishing to teach a lesson should contact Pam Burrell, who will serve as curator for the Center & Museum, at the Library at 795-2400, x2268 or via e-mail at pam@laredolibrary.org.
