Civic Engagement at the Library: Programs for the Political Climate

When:  
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 (10:00 AM - 12:00 PM) Export to vCalendar
Where:   Arlington Heights Memorial Library (In Person)

Libraries are increasingly asked to lead their communities in addressing political and other hot button topics. However, staff may feel at a loss for how to approach these less traditional programming topics.

At this panel, presenters will discuss the various initiatives they’ve led at their libraries ranging from programing on talking to kids about race, to how to engage elected officials, to holding a kindness rally. Participants will leave with strategies to successfully launch civic and political programming at their libraries.

Presenters:

Mike Monahan, Specialty Info Services Supervisor, Arlington Heights Public Library

Susan Wolf, Reference Manager, Northbrook Public Library

Jose Cruz, Middle School Services, Oak Park Public Library

Skye Lavin, Adult Services Manager, Forest Park Public Library

Type:   Program

Categories: Burr Ridge Area, Northbrook Area, Chicago Area
