raised hands

The library strives to provide a forum for timely community conversations around issues that Cape residents care about. Community conversations can transform libraries, communities, systems, and people. Conversations bring people with common concerns together, unleash new possibilities, build partnerships, and create an educational avenue for residents to become active participants in our community life. As a library, we believe coming together to share information, identify concerns, and create dialogue leads to more civic involvement and positive outcomes. Our role as a community information hub uniquely positions us to create opportunities for residents to become more informed and active in local life and facilitate dialogue that serves as a catalyst for change.
