PA Forward: Civic and Social Literacy

The Learning Commons is a proud participant in the Pennsylvania Library Association's PA Forward initiative. Learn more about that initiative on this guide.

Civic and Social Literacy

Civic and social literacy is important to be an informed citizen and to help understand how government policies and our communities shape health care. 

PaLA's mission: "We envision a Pennsylvania where citizens have the knowledge and skills they need to improve their lives, to participate and contribute effectively to their communities, and to connect with one another through discourse."

Civic Engagement and Health Care

The Library provides the following guide to help you be an informed citizen. We will also provide print materials and table top displays related to important civic engagement dates. Check out our Civic Engagement guide for more information.
