Upcoming Featured Programs


Living Room Conversations

The Nevada County Community Library is hosting a series of online events through the Living Room Conversations Program.  Living Room Conversations provide an easy structure for engaging in a friendly yet meaningful conversation with those whom we may not agree.  These conversations increase understanding, reveal common ground, and sometimes even allow us to seek out solutions.

Please join us Monday, October 26th from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. for the 1st in a 3 part series on Race and Ethnicity.   

The expressed American ideal is the creation of a society that is fair and has opportunity for all, regardless of individual or group identity.  This conversation series is an opportunity to explore our varied experiences of race and ethnicity in the American context.  Where are we and what do we aspire to for ourselves and our communities?

Registration is required and a Zoom online meeting link will be emailed to registered participants prior to the scheduled event.
