Be Counted. Be Heard.
What does Democracy 2020 mean, and why are we dedicating a year to this theme? In short, Democracy 2020 speaks to our role as a public library in encouraging thoughtful, informed civic engagement. This year, we strive to help our patrons prepare for and participate in major events such as the 2020 Census and the U.S. presidential election. Throughout the year, programming focusing on the census and election will help educate the public while fostering deeper discussions surrounding what it means to vote, to be counted, and to participate in an active democratic system.
