Propel East Hartford is a new stream of programs and services for people who want to make a difference in East Hartford. Each quarter, we will offer programs that foster community involvement and pride. Propel East Hartford was created by the community, for the community. Propel programs are always listed in our current library brochure.

Community Co-Design Session: Propel East Hartford
Wednesday, January 8 (snow date, January 15), 6:30 PM
Propel East Hartford was developed following a series of community conversations held last year at the library. Let’s continue the conversation! How can we support civic engagement in East Hartford? What programs and services should we add to our lineup? We want to hear from you, whether you’ve participated before, or whether you are new to the conversation. Please register.
Wednesday, February 5, 6:30 PM
Using a framework developed by Thought Partners Solutions (https://thoughtps.com/contact/) we will hold a “living room conversation” at the library in January. Join us to get to know your neighbors through a deep and constructive conversation about race and equity. All participants will follow these guidelines: be curious and open to learning; show respect and suspend judgment; find common ground; be authentic and welcome that from others; be purposeful and to the point; and own and guide the conversation. Best suited for adults. Registration is required as space is limited. Choose the session that best fits your schedule.
To discuss opportunities for new Propel programs, please call or e-mail Sarah Kline Morgan, library director (860-290-4340).
