As a public institution, Toledo Lucas County Public Library is often asked by our City, County, etc. partners to publicly post documents or plans for Lucas County residents to review. These publications often have a public comment or public hearing date associated. Please see the relevant items and carefully read the instructions below. Thank you!
At the Library, we highly encourage community groups and organizations to host public debates and candidate forums in our spaces. To ensure a thriving, robust democracy, we must organize gatherings that share vital civic information and allow our neighbors to get to know officials or candidates. Here are some resources to help you plan your next debate or forum…
The Ohio Debate Commission Playbook.
Additional resources from the Ohio Debate Commission.
Request a Library space, such as Main Library’s Large Glass Community Room or McMaster Theater.
To partner with the Library on a debate or forum, please visit our partnership page. Note: We will do our best to connect all organizations to appropriate resources but to partner with the Library officially, we ask that gatherings are nonpartisan or that they contain diverse, multi-partisan voices during planning and event execution.
