Civics for Grownups

Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility in our Communities

The Wyomissing Public Library will offer “Civics for Grownups” again this month. Chris Daubert, who teaches Social Studies at Wilson High School and served on Reading City Council, will present the 3-part series on three consecutive Wednesdays at 6 PM beginning October 10th.

The series is designed to offer knowledge about how local, state and federal government work, the differences among the three and how they inter-relate. In the first program, Mr. Daubert will discuss the difference between a borough and a township, what a board of supervisors does and how they work with a borough or municipal manager, where local taxes come from and what they support.

The second program, on October 17th, will focus on state government, what the state legislature does, how bills become law, what the interface is between local government and state.

The federal government is the topic for the third and final program on October 24th, including the three branches of government, what each one is supposed to do and how they work together as well as independently.

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.org or by calling the library at 610-374-2385
