The Grapes of Wrath with scholar Helen Lojek on Feb 7th
The Great Gatsby  with scholar Wendy Green on Feb 21st
Books provided with registration, no library card required.

Doing Democracy
Tuesday, February 27th 6:30-8:30
The McCall Public Library invites you to join community dialogues on this month’s topic of: “Our Trash, Our Problem” Are we ignoring the opportunities of trash? What if all households had to process their own trash? Let’s trash talk recycling, whose responsibility is it anyway?

Doing Democracy – Sponsors open dialogues on issues facing our community. The hope is to foster a culture of civil discourse that allows multiple perspectives and creative conflict leading to the discovery of common needs and perhaps common visions. The content and guidelines have been chosen by the participants, not by a leader or the library itself.
