Informed Citizen Book Club

Old Firehouse Books is partnering with the League of Women Voters of Larimer County to encourage readers to stay informed. Each month we will 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. 

Meetings take place on the second Wednesday of the month at Old Firehouse Books at 6:30pm.
