the Library’s Free Forum
Each of our libraries sets aside open space for meeting rooms, perhaps the last town square in a free democracy.
Large and small, glass-walled, available to all.
perhaps the last town square in a free democracy.
Shared spaces, where we can meet for conversation and study, or a roomful of citizens convene and view a video conference, unlimited by distance, weather or economics.
An open resource, without consideration to a patron’s social standing or economic circumstance; they benefit young and old, homeless and housed alike.
...Filled with purpose and events: it is your space!

Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.
