Join a three-part virtual conversation on racism and racial justice

Albert-Carlton Cashiers Library is dipping its toes into online programming and partnering with The Village Green to host Race Matters, a three-part virtual conversation about racism and racial justice based on influential books on the subjects. Participants are encouraged to read the suggested books and join the conversation.

Join Race Matters, a virtual three-part conversation on racism and racial justice.

The Library will be offering several online programs for Summer Learning kids, but their partnership with The Village Green brings a more adult oriented summer conversation series streamed to your home.

  • The first conversation will be based on the book I’m Still Here by Austin Channing-Brown at 4 p.m. on June 25.
  • The second conversation is based on How to be Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi at 4 p.m. on July 23.
  • The third conversation will be at 4 p.m. on Aug. 27 on a book to be announced soon.

Staff at the Library thanks everyone for their patience and grace while they get used to the new normal.

The Library will continue offering by appointment and curbside service for the near term. And the Library is forgiving overdue fines through the end of June.

Now is the perfect time to return that old lost book that’s been hiding on the back of that dusty shelf.
