We need YOU for our new Senior Debate pilot program! 

The Library is looking for older adult patrons interested in coming together in ​a virtual community to engage in a fun activity:  DEBATE!

You don’t need any experience or skill as a public speaker - - you will learn the structure of Senior Debate and participate in practice sessions leading up to our inaugural Senior Debate Tournament! 

This is an opportunity to learn new skills, engage in civil discourse with your fellow older adults, and come together in our virtual library space to build relationships! 

​[Registration is required.  Zoom links will be sent at 10am the day of each program.]
