Civics on the Go: Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Hi neighbor!

Come talk to us about neighborhoods and neighborliness at Civics on the Go, part of a series of casual conversations about issues affecting our country and our world. It's not a formal presentation--just a chance for customers of all ages to stop by, chat with librarians and learn something new about the topic of the day.

This month the Civics on the Go team will be doing two events. The first is in Schlessman Hall on Floor 1 of Central Library on Tuesday, August 6. Stop by anytime between 3:30 and 5:30 PM.

Or talk to us on Sunday, August 11 when you come watch the Mr. Rogers documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor. It's part of the Love thy Neighbor film series, and we'll be talking to people before and after the film.

We'll be discussing questions like:

  • What are your hopes for your neighborhood?
  • How do you make your neighborhood welcoming?
  • How do you have difficult conversations?
  • What would you like to learn about your neighborhood?
  • How can you contribute to your neighborhood?

If you can't make it to the Central Library, here are some great resources on science and society: Civics on the Go: Won't You Be My Neighbor.

Do you have ideas for future Civics on the Go events? What should we talk and learn about next? What does being an engaged member of the community mean to you?
