Civic & Community Engagement

Engaged and empowered citizens generate optimism about the future, produce good decisions on meeting tough community challenges and contribute to local economic vitality. In communities large and small, public libraries provide leadership, information, tools and a place where people can connect to fulfill the roles and responsibilities of active civic engagement.
