The Margaret E. Heggan Free Public Library in Washington Township has received a $500 stipend from Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change, an initiative of the American Library Association to help libraries engage communities in programs and conversations on the climate crisis.

As part of ALAs Resilient Communities programs, the library will host a Zoom talk on Climate Change Fiction: Just for Fun or Forecasting the Future, 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, with Rowan University writing arts professor Edward Ted Howell.

The library will host a community read book discussion of The End of the Ocean by Naja Lunde on Zoom on Wednesday, April 7, at 7 p.m. The book is available in print and audiobook format through curbside pickup, or it can be downloaded as an ebook or audiobook using the Libby app.

In addition, there will be a screening and discussion of a portion of the Nova documentary, Decoding the Weather Machine, on Monday, April 19, at 7 p.m.

Advance online registration via the librarys event calendar is required for all events. A link to each event will be emailed prior to the start.

Resilient Communities strives to raise awareness and provide accurate information about the climate change crisis to the public through libraries. The pilot project has been funded by a grant from Andrew and Carol Phelps, the parents of a public librarian and a library masters student.

Margaret E. Heggan Free Public Library is located at 606 Delsea Drive in Sewell. Call 856-589-3334 or visit http://www.hegganlibrary.org for more information.
