The library has acquired an unlimited simultaneous user license so that there are no limits on how many people can borrow the eBook and Audiobook formats through OverDrive at DaytonMetroLibrary.org through July 31.
The Dayton Metro Library and the Dayton Daily News will host a panel discussion, live-streamed on Facebook, on Wednesday, July 8, from 5 to 6 p.m. The discussion will be moderated by the newspaper's Community Impact Editor Amelia Robinson.
“This will surely be an important conversation for our community as we all work to push Dayton forward,” Robinson said.
Other panelists are: Debbie Feldman (president and CEO, Dayton Children’s Hospital), Shannon Isom (president and CEO, YWCA Dayton), Kevin M. Kelly (executive director, Dayton International Peace Museum) and Brian O. Martin (executive director, Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission).
Questions for the panelists to consider should be submitted to the Facebook event page or via a form linked to on www.bigread.org.
“We have no doubt that hearing from these respected community leaders will help all of us better understand racism locally, and feel more knowledgeable and confident discussing ways we can move our community forward as a result,” said Kambitsch.
Suggested activities in addition to the Panel Discussion are also available on BigRead.org.
