The Salon: A Forum for Conversation

BPL hosts a monthly discussion group at the library from May through October. It meets on the 4th Friday of the month from 10:00-11:30AM from May through October. The Salon interests men and women who enjoy stimulating conversation and like to learn from others via civil discourse. Topics vary, though generally they reflect current happenings that impact the public. We aim for conversations that are energizing, fun, and thought provoking. Next up: 

"Trust:  How Is It Granted?” 

Trust permits society and our civilization to function.  While laws and regulations may set boundaries on behavior, it’s basic trust that governs daily life.  We believe that friends will do what they say, that the supermarket won’t poison us, and that a green piece of paper is worth a dollar.  But what is the source of our trust? How do we form this most basic of bonds with others?

Join us at the Salon on Friday, October 27th at 10:00. We’ll be in the large conference room on the main floor at BPL. Civil discourse is the norm.
