Public Spaces Talks at the St. Laurent Library Branch, June 15


The Public Spaces Talks Series looks at commons areas such as parks, streetscapes, parking lots, malls, markets and libraries. First we will share stories about our favorite community spaces, and then take a short walk around the neighborhood to brainstorm how we might better use these spaces to create more vibrant, connected, and creative communities.  

Expect to leave knowing your neighbors, and perhaps with a  new perspective on a familiar place.

St-Laurent branch, 515 Côté street, Saturday June 15th, 11am-1pm

Registration required

Drop-ins are welcome

Food and beverages will be provided.
