As we continue to transition to a new website, we have a tool we can take advantage of! Previously, the agenda went up only after the deadline. But with the ability of Google sheets to be edited in real-time, the agenda can now live in real time too! (Or close to it.) We will continue to let you know when the deadline arrives, and when the agenda is CLOSED for the next meeting.

The Montgomery County Public Libraries will host children’s author Hena Khan on Sunday, June 4 at 4 pm. Ms. Khan was a presenter at the MCPL Diversity in Children’s Literature Symposium earlier this spring. In case you were unable to attend that event, here is another opportunity to hear her speak on her experiences as a Muslim American writer who writes about her culture and religion. She grew up in Montgomery County and still lives here today. We hope you can join us for this conversation.
