Participants are encouraged to bring and share their opinions to a forum where controversy and courtesy go hand and hand.  Topics include: Healthcare (February 8), Religious Freedom (February 22), Education Reform (March 7) and Minimum Wage (March 14).  Registration is required and must be done in person at the library’s second-floor Reference Desk.  There is a $20 registration fee (to cover costs of materials and help offset the cost of the professional facilitator) due at the time of registration.  Registration closes for the 4-discussion series on February 8 at 5pm.
