Considerations: Wisconsin Roads

Are you looking for a place to have deeper, richer conversations about timely topics? A group that shares diverse viewpoints in a respectful manner? Considerations is a community discussion group held on the second Tuesday of every month in the library's First Floor Reading Room. A librarian extensively researches and posts articles on this page monthly to help inform the discussion. You can participate as much as you are comfortable.
Refreshments are at 6 p.m. and discussion begins at 6:15.
Considerations is a partnership with Citizens for a Strong Oshkosh and the Oshkosh Civility Project.
