Civic Information Center
James Madison

“A popular Government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives.”

James Madison, 1822

Civic Information Center

Public libraries provide the information we need to participate in democracy.

The Civic Information Center collection includes planning documents, environmental impact reports, and other publications and Web links on local, state, and federal government, politics, issues, and services.

The Civic Information Center is located near the rear entrance. Please ask for assistance at the Library Help Desk.
