Do you remember there’s a census this year? How about a presidential election? (OK, it’s a little hard to forget that one.)
Still, the pandemic has definitely limited how much attention we’re giving to these major pieces of our democracy. They aren’t going anywhere, though, and the crisis is showing the need for honest public discourse.
That’s why we invited Jessica Bayless, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s lead librarian for civic and social information, to talk about these issues and more on civics in our most recent P100 Podcast episode. And be sure to check out the library’s online offerings here.
