The Sonoma Valley Library will host “Together at the Table: Climate Change,” a panel discussion on how climate change is being addressed in Sonoma County. The discussion will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 22, at the library.

The panel will consist of representatives from Sonoma State University’s Center for Environmental Inquiry, Sonoma Clean Power, the Regional Climate Protection Authority, the Center for Climate Protection, the Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, and the Energy and Sustainability Division of Sonoma County. Local climate change activist, Tom Conlon, with Transition Sonoma Valley and the Sierra Club, will be one of the panelists.

This event is part of a larger program, “Together at the Table” designed to encourage people to come together and voice thoughts and opinions on important topics with each other and decision makers. The U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services provides the funding for “Together at the Table.” Panel discussions on other current topics will occur at each of the libraries in the Sonoma County Library System.

Branch Manager Lisa Musgrove says, “The Sonoma Valley Library is pleased to be one of the first libraries in the county to host a ‘Together at the Table’ event. It’s sure to be informative and provocative.”

The event is free and open to all. The library is located at 755 W. Napa St., Sonoma. For more information, contact Musgrove at 996-5217 or
