Citizens for Peace Meeting Highlights Book Collection
Readings of selections from the Livonia Civic Center Library Peace Collection will highlight the Citizens for Peace meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 14.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Unity of Livonia, located on the north side of Five Mile road between Middlebelt and Inkster. The public is invited.
The Peace Collection, comprised of several hundred books on peace and nonviolence, was funded by the Citizens for Peace. The library has established a “Peace Center” in the middle of the upstairs adult books section. The books are identified by a blue dove on the spine. Peace books suitable for children are located in the children's section on the main floor.
The Livonia collection is believed to be one of few if not the only public library collection featuring books with the theme of peace and nonviolence, according to Citizens for Peace President Colleen Mills.
The brief oral readings will be by members of Citizens for Peace and include both adult and children's books. For more information, contact Mills at (734) 425-0079.
