Starting on Constitution Day, September 17, the Durham County Library is hosting a month-long series of free programs focused on a community reading of the U.S. Constitution. Events include:
- An Evening with Sarah Vowell, American Historian at the Carolina Theater on Monday, October 9
- Nasher Reads: The U.S. Constitution at the Nasher Museum of Art on Thursday, October 19
- film showings, Hamilton sing-a-longs, book clubs, storytime for kids, and more.
You can pick up a free copy of the U.S. Constitution at any Durham County Library location, while supplies last. And check out their Durham Speaks videos, short interviews with Durham residents sharing their thoughts on the Constitution and what it means to them.
A reminder to Duke students: As residents of Durham County, you’re eligible to get a free library card at any Durham County Library location. You’re not required to have one to participate in Durham Reads Together, but it’s another resource at your fingertips.
