The Clearview Library District will launch its new year-long series “Celebrating Our Community” during the month of March.
The series is inspired by those that live, play, and work in the community — past and present. Each month, the library will offer a variety of programs that spark conversation, teach new skills, and strengthen relationships by celebrating the community’s differences and commonalities.
“We recognize how important it is for library programming to reflect the spirit of our community,” said Public Services Manager Casey Lansinger-Pierce. “This series was created through community feedback and partnerships with various groups.
“Our goal is that, through these programs, we’ll learn about and come to appreciate all of the wonderful different aspects of our community, both past and present, in order to strengthen our bond.”
