S.U.R.E., together with the Swampscott Public Library. is proud to bring you One Topic One Town: A Journey Towards Dismantling Racism.

Racism is a problem in our country, and no city or town is exempt from it. Our goal is not only to raise awareness about systemic racism in our society, but to take a look at ourselves, at our history, and to elevate the voices of our brothers and sisters of color.

Let’s read some books!  All books are available at the library.  Read One, read them all.  Join us for book discussions and other programming.
