LINCOLN PARK – The Lincoln Park Library offers adults a chance to discover the entertaining side of civics at 6 p.m. July 12 with “Civically Speaking,” an interactive performance by actor Terry Lynch.

The 45-minute presentation offers a talk that aims to educate while it entertains. It explores past “fake news” phenomena, reveals when the structure of the U.S. government was challenged in the past and looks at whether the Electoral College is antiquated or still plays a key role in the balance of power.

Civics, the study of the rights and duties of those holding citizenship, delves into the importance of an informed electorate and its role in influencing logical – as opposed to emotional – decisions.

The library, 1381 Southfield Road, offers many programs for children, teens and adults through its “Build a Better World” Summer Reading Program.
