Current Affairs
You asked us to engage community members in current affairs and decision-making. In a time when national, local, and family debates seem to polarize and drive us apart, we ask: “Is it still possible to find common ground. And if so, how?” The Library invites community membersĀ  with differing perspectives opportunities to engage in civic dialog.
