Library to host community conversation on Sandy Hook school shooting tragedy

All around our country there are conversations about the Sandy Hook tragedy. What caused it? What should our responses be? How do we ensure safe schools?

Join with other members of the community for a conversation on these issues at the Central Resource Library, 9875 W. 87th St., Overland Park, on Thursday, January 10, at 7 p.m. All perspectives and views are welcome and the conversations will be moderated by trained, neutral, facilitators.

The Library wants to provide a safe space for the hard conversations about Sandy Hook tragedy that are being had in communities across the country. The Library does not have the answers, but is committed to providing resources and information from all sides to members of the community who want to stop feeling helpless in the face of this tragedy.

No registration required. For more information call (913) 826-4600 or visit

Library programs are free and open to the public. Interpretive services and other accommodations for those with special needs are available by contacting Library staff at least one week in advance of the program.
