Civics Book Group

This group will discuss a series of books about government, historical perspectives and related topics. This is a place for civil conversation while learning how to be a more knowledgeable and effective citizen. Limited copies of each book are available to borrow at the Information Desk. We meet the third Wednesday of the month at 7 PM in the Mezzanine Meeting Room.
