We’ve been busy at the Civic Media Center programming safe ways for our community to get together, including through outdoor meetings and events, which we are in the process of planning.
Gainesville organizers have been amazing throughout this pandemic, including Free Grocery Store and Free Store, two projects housed under our roof that feed and supply clothing and household items to the folks who need it.
Books to Prisoners sends lots of books into facilities all over Florida two times a month, while we have other volunteers working on our huge collections of books each week.
We are opening to the public on Wednesdays from 2 to 6pm and Saturdays from 1 to 5pm. (Wear a mask, please.) We’ve got volunteer meetings every 2nd and 4th Thursday at 5:30pm, book club Wednesday nights at 7pm, and lots of other ways to plug in.
We are going to be part of ArtWalk Friday, Jan. 28, and we are having another Queer Art Market outside in our courtyard on Friday, Feb. 11, from 6 to 10pm — come support local makers!
Lots of great events are in the works, so keep an eye out for updates on our Facebook (click on the first entry for updated pages) and Instagram pages throughout the month. As always, email email@example.com with questions.
