Civically Speaking

Event Date: 
Mar 21 2017 - 6:00pm

Join us, on Tuesday, March 21st, at 6:00 p.m. when the LaSalle Public Library hosts Terry Lynch in an entertaining and memorable look at “civics.”  You may have to consult your “way back machine” to recall that term! Simply put, civics is an understanding of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, and the role of every citizen to be informed, and to make thoughtful decisions. Staying informed today forces us to consider if civics can be civil.

Could it be enjoyable, or dare we say it, fun?

In this upbeat and amusing program, Lynch provides a thoughtful and informative presentation about our role as citizens. Original and engaging, this program takes the high road as we traverse the landscape of free speech, passionate views, and conflicting ideas.

This program is free and open to public. The LaSalle Public Library is located at 305 Marquette, LaSalle, Illinois and is ADA compliant and welcoming. For more information, please call the Library at 815-223-2341.
