The St. Charles Public Library is excited to celebrate National Library Card Sign-up Month with this year’s honorary chairs Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter and philanthropist Idina Menzel and her sister author and educator Cara Menzel.

The St. Charles Public Library hosts Great Decisions, the largest discussion program on world affairs in the U.S., administered and produced by the Foreign Policy Association. This month’s discussion, “War Crimes,” will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, September 21 in the library’s Bisbee Conference Room.

The annual series features a DVD on each topic, followed by a moderated discussion among the participants. Participants are asked to review the relevant chapter of the Great Decisions briefing book, available for purchase or check out at the library’s Research and Reading Desk. Registration is not required.
