Libraries for NWOC:
Sign up for your library to participate in the National Week of Conversation April 20-28, 2018!
Thanks to our premiere partners
Why should my library participate? The National Week of Conversation (NWOC) is an opportunity to help your library’s patrons connect with other people in their community and across the country. Libraries are a trusted gathering place in communities across the country, and can help in NWOC’s mission to revitalize our democracy. NWOC will allow your patrons to connect to other people in conversations they normally would not be able to have. Check out our PDF guide for participation.
How can my library participate?
There are a number of different ways your library
can participate in NWOC:
Host an event, or make your library available for conversations
- Book Clubs: Provide space for your local book clubs to discuss a book that brings up important issues. Check out this list of suggestions from the Kansas City Public Library.
- Living Room Conversations offers self-facilitated conversation guides. Simply provide meeting space and conversation guides to groups of patrons who can meet at your library for conversations.
- Facilitated Conversations: Send an email to [email protected] to learn about bringing a facilitator to your library.
