Public libraries have always been an essential part of a functioning democracy. McCall Library recently expanded its role in the local community through a program called “Doing Democracy.” This series of discussions, about controversial and complex topics, promotes citizen dialogue about issues that face our community, enlivens our democracy, creates a culture of civil discourse, and allows for multiple perspectives, creative conflict, and the discovery of common ground. Learn how the McCall Library and volunteers are training a group of people in facilitating public discussion by creating an atmosphere where people may feel uncomfortable, but always feel safe. The goal of the program is to co-create, with the participants, a vision of a vital, healthy and caring community.
Presenters: Meg Lojek and Casey Bruck, McCall Public Library
