I’m loving the new ALA Public Programs Office offering: Common Ground!
It’s a great program that encourages participating libraries to build partnerships with local groups and work together to teach their community just how easy (and how important) being civil and compassionate can be.
As I rushed to tell my husband about the program, he announced, “You’re talking to fast…what are they teaching?”
“Y’know,” I replied, “Civility! Being civil! Being nice! Y’know, the opposite of when people are being dicks!”
Which may or may not be a civil way of saying that.
