The Portland Public Library partners each year with the Camden Conference to bring a series of original programs to our community in anticipation of the annual conference. The theme for the 35th annual conference to be held February 25-27, 2022 is: Europe: Challenged at Home and Abroad. Our Library will offer three related virtual Community Events in early 2022.
Europe’s leaders and citizens are facing pervasive economic, political and social challenges, some exacerbated by the global pandemic. How cohesive is the European Union? Where are populist movements headed, and where are democratic institutions under threat? What will happen to the European-United States bond as a new generation of leaders pursue their own agendas with Russia, China, and other countries? When can we rely on Europe, and can Europeans rely on us?
