The third installment of the SLNC and Silver Lake Library’s “Words Can Help… And Hurt” series of conversations took place on November 13 at the library. There was an exceptional panel and the discussion, which focused on concerns facing the LBGTQI community, was well received. The next program will deal with issues of diversity and will take place in January. For more information about this event and others, please visit
