Social Justice Book Club

Conversations matter. There’s still time to sign up for the majority of the sessions today!

The Abington Community Library is hosting a Social Justice Book Club throughout 2018. There will be four sessions, each focusing on a different, relevant social justice topic. Copies of the books may be picked-up at the Library once you are registered. Attendance is not required at all four sessions. These discussions are open to teens, 9-12th grades and adults but teens will have the chance to attend special teen-only discussions should they feel more comfortable in that setting. This series is aimed at exploring difficult subjects and create a dialogue in a safe environment. We hope you will join us on this journey.
