The Case for Hope
One of the many challenging parts of the library being closed to the public is not being able to have our monthly book discussions. With all of the turmoil people are facing these days, it would feel good to be face to face and get a chance to have civil discourse as well as comfort each other in tough times.
If you are interested in learning more from the perspective of a young, well known civil rights activist, check out On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope by DeRay Mckesson.
Mckesson is a charismatic, persuasive, and passionate former schoolteacher and also hosts the weekly podcast Pod Save the People, which is an incredible resource in its own right.
Until We Meet Again
Is there a more beloved place than the library? I feel more sure than ever that we are lucky to have a gem like the Montecito Library in our community.
Please get in touch by email if I can be of assistance. I’m still helping in a Public Health capacity, but will be back in full library mode come July, in time for our curbside services.
Be well, Library Friends! You are appreciated and dearly missed.
