Volunteers wanted: S. Bear Bergman’s Gender Reveal Party  

Adult Program Assistants needed evenings in October

Help S. Bear Bergman and the Library create a joyful, engaging, and community-driven piece of theatre. Together we will 'dramatically' reduce the barriers of understanding around trans, nonbinary, genderqueer, and two-spirit experiences.
