Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility in our Communities

Wilson Social Studies teacher and former Reading City Councilman Chris Daubert will present a 3-part “Civics for Grownups” series at the Wyomissing Public Library beginning Monday, April 23rdat 6 PM.

Do you live in a borough or township? What’s the difference between a board of supervisors and a commission? Who’s in charge of where you live? Are they appointed or elected? Where do your local tax dollars go? What about state representation? What does the Pennsylvania Legislature do? How does a bill become a law? What’s the difference between what your local, state and federal governments can do?

The first program will focus on local government; on April 30thstate government will be the topic, and how the federal government works will wrap up the series on May 7th. The series will refresh your memory about everything you learned in your civics classes in high school, and help you figure out just how government works on all levels.

The program is free and open to the public. Registration is requested, and may be done online at www.wyopublib.orgor by calling the library at 610-374-2385
