GALENA COMMUNITY BUILDING GROUP

The Galena Community Building Group, which was an extension of last year's Lenten Sacred Conversations on racism, invites you to their meetings. We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at Galena United Methodist Church. This group focuses on education about the plight of our non-white neighbors and advocacy for vulnerable populations within our city.

Our next meeting is Tuesday, March 28, at 7:00 PM at Galena United Methodist Church. Educators from all three Galena schools (the school counselors and the ELL [English Language Learners] teachers) will be part of a moderated round-table discussion about the challenges in education with the changing demographics in our schools.

 

OUTREACH PROGRAM - The Galena Public Library has started an outreach program. If you know anyone in our library district who has a library card and would benefit from having books, DVDs, etc, delivered to their door, please contact us. This might be a person who has a disability or an emergency (at home caring for a sick parent or child) that make it impossible to physically go to the library and has no one else readily available to pick up material at the library. The patron needs to fill out an information form and a questionnaire of their likes and dislikes. Please contact Linda Klug -- Circulation Services Librarian at 815-777-0200 on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday at the Galena Library.
