It can be difficult and challenging for people to figure out where they can go to talk, ask questions, and exchange ideas on issues of the day without finding themselves in the midst of a heated debate. Public libraries can provide that neutral ground and help its citizenry become informed and engaged, but how do we go about this? What trends can we anticipate? Register for this program and find out. Bring your questions and share your experiences.
