To get you thinking about the issues, HPL and CBC are seeking residents’ input in a campaign called If I Ran This City. Pick up a postcard to draw or write your vision of an ideal Hamilton at any of our 23 branches.

Join us at Central Library Saturday October 15 2-4pm for a panel discussion with a team of guest election columnists who will share their perspectives on the city, their vision for the future and preview at the candidates.
