Informed Citizen Book Club

Red lineart of the Old Firehouse Books Logo (a firehouse with tower, many windows, and an arched doorway); on top of the building are a black Republican elephant, a black Democratic donkey, and a tall, striped Uncle Sam hat with three stars along the brim; on the building, above the doorway is a rosette (black with one white ring and a white star inside that ring), and two balloons (black with white stars, black and white striped).

Old Firehouse Books is partnering with the League of Women Voters of Larimer County to encourage readers to stay informed. Each month we feature a different book that focuses on an issue important to all citizens. The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The Informed Citizen's Book Club welcomes all readers regardless of gender.

Until we can meet in person at Old Firehouse Books again, meetings take place on Zoom on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm.

Please check the League of Womens Voters of Larimer County's calendar of events for more information on how to gain access to the Zoom link.
