The Building Love series of events started in January with four programs centered around the theme of World Cultures.  The themes and the programs were developed by a group of local volunteers who approached the library programming office, wanting to create series of events that promote positive social change.

The Building Love programs have proved very popular with patrons, whether it be for a special documentary, a book discussion or a community conversation.  They continue this month and will wrap up in May.

The remaining programs are as follows:

April theme, Environment (see poster)
