Community Conversations

Share

What’s important in your community right now? What would you like to talk about?

The brand new Community Conversations initiative at The New York Public Library introduces a space for discussion on local topics that matter most to you. Local librarians at select branches will co-facilitate these dialogues with community organizations, inviting anyone and everyone to the table to share and listen. Let’s create a truly democratic space where we can connect together through meaningful dialogue!

JOIN US as we launch a Community Conversation in your neighborhood! Here’s what you can expect (when you participate):

  • Connect with your neighbors. Build new relationships in your area by taking the time to talk with other community members about local issues.
  • Stay informed. Get accurate information and build your knowledge around timely neighborhood topics.
  • Bring your voice to the table. Our libraries are open spaces for all sides of an issue to be discussed. When you attend a conversation in your community, you’re sharing an important perspective.
  • Participate in the unique culture of your neighborhood. Speak up and listen in the context of a local dialogue that tells your community’s complex story.
