Introduction to the Census @ Vernetta Smith Chehalis Timberland Library
Feb 21 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Once every ten years the Census takes a snapshot of who we are. The data collected helps determine how many representatives we have in Congress, where roads, bridges, and other infrastructure are built, and how much federal money our communities receive. It’s crucial that everyone is counted once and in the right place.

If you’re interested in learning how you or your organization can be part of this effort, join us for this training. We’ll look at the history of the Census, how it has changed over the years, and how it affects our lives today.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Sometimes Heroes: America’s Changing Relationship with Its Veterans @ Vernetta Smith Chehalis Timberland Library
Mar 7 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

“Support our troops” is a common phrase, seen on lawn signs and bumper stickers across America. Veterans are welcomed home by enthusiastic crowds, and thousands of service organizations help veterans find jobs, secure housing, and heal from the experience of war.

But it wasn’t always this way. Veterans returning from Vietnam were often greeted by mobs accusing them of being “baby killers.” Veterans from Korea felt their war was forgotten and unknown. And veterans from World War I, destitute during the Great Depression, were treated like criminals by their government.

Why and how has America’s treatment of its veterans changed over time? How have the country’s citizens responded to the call of duty from one war to the next? This presentation examines America’s relationship to wars and veterans over the last century, and what shapes our current national consciousness towards veterans and the wars they fight in our name.

*Contains mature themes.
