As communities across the nation grapple with the social implications of the shootings in Orlando, Baton Rouge, Minnesota, and Dallas in the past month, libraries are stepping up to offer resources and support. Locally, Westlake Porter Public Library is joining with the eight other Cuyahoga County library systems in supporting community dialogue and offering resources and support in the aftermath of these events.
Issues of race, prejudice, inequity, and violence are challenging topics, but they must be addressed in open, safe and productive conversations if we wish to move forward as a nation. The nine library systems that serve Cuyahoga County are seeking to support community dialogue around these critical issues and offer resources that can advance learning and understanding.
