Pushing the Limits: PLACE: Climate Change

Public Libraries Advancing Community Engagement

The Greenwood County Library will host a three-part series on climate change and how it affects us individually and as a community. A meteorologist from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) will lead each session as we read, view a short film, and discuss the issues and possible solutions presented. Free copies of the featured titles will be available to participants while supplies last.


An informational meeting will be held on Thursday, August 10, 6 p.m. in the American Veterans Auditorium at the Greenwood County Library. Copies of the first book, Isaac's Storm by Erik Larson, will be available that evening. For more information about the series, please call the Greenwood County Library at 941-4650.
