Lunchtime @the Library --- Civically Speaking

Wednesday, September 12, 2018 - 11:30am to 1:00pm
Bring your lunch! We provide the guest speaker, coffee and dessert!

Civics. Do you remember that term? Many Americans do not. Quite simply, civics is the study of the rights and duties of citizenship. The importance of an informed electorate cannot be understated, because an informed voter can make logical decisions. However, can civics be civil? Enjoyable? Or even fun? Absolutely. Join Terry Lynch for an enjoyable and fun look at civics.
