Conversations on Voting Rights in America

From the nation’s founding in 1776 to women’s suffrage in 1919, from the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to modern-day voter ID laws, voting rights have a complicated history in America. Led by Professor Lo Faber, “Who Gets to Vote?” is a thoughtful reading and discussion series exploring how voting rights history intersects with the present. To participate in the series, register here. The series will be held at 11am on Saturdays from March 13 - April 3. Free books for the program may be requested here. (This is not required for attendance. Supplies are limited, so please select options for sessions you know you can attend.)

Twin Brothers Reflect on Dryades Library's Influence

Ken and Kerry Sabathia are twins who grew up going to the Dryades Library in the 1960s — a time when libraries were desegregated on paper, but not always in practice. More than 60 years later, the brothers returned to the newly registered historic place to reflect on the lifelong influences it imparted. Read their story here.
