See what's happening in Selma and Dallas County.
Becky Nichols and the team at the Selma and Dallas County Public Library are constantly providing programs and resources that enrich and improve our community! If you haven't stopped by lately, take a moment to do so during National Library Week (April 9-15, 2017). We are especially partial to the library's incredible local archive, but they have something for everyone and every age. Check out our community calendar for events around the library. When you stop by, make sure to ask about the library's upcoming summer programming focused on "Building a Better World," and tell them the Chamber sent you!

We invite you to explore a small slice of Selma and Dallas County’s African American Heritage by visiting these 10 sites:
