What is Journeys: Identity, Culture and Community

The Beals Memorial Library, its' Trustees, staff, volunteers, Friends group, and community partners plan to implement an ambitious series of year-long, interrelated programs entitled, Journeys: Identity, Culture and Community. 


The series will work to tackle the issues of isolation, domestic violence, substance abuse disorder, trauma, and mental health, all of which have been exacerbated by the effects of the pandemic. Our approach will be intergenerational, utilizing art, poetry, prose, literature, guided meditation/yoga, and community discussions to explore these topics, placing an emphasis on strengthening equality, diversity, and inclusion.

All programs are funded through a federal Library Services Technology Act grant.
