First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State. This free web presentation allows attendees to share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.
Creating Civil Engagement and Conversation with YOUR Community. April 2, 2019, 9 a.m. PACIFIC
This program explores how libraries play an integral role in creating and sustaining a platform for civil engagement and community conversations. Through community conversations, a greater populace is able to make their voices heard, hear the “other” perspective, and explore the topic with others in their own personal spheres of influence. In a time when disparate groups are at constant odds, we have to embrace the notion that we can disagree without being disagreeable.
