Come Tell It Like It Is!
A Discussion on the Opioid Epidemic

According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 64,000 Americans were killed by drug overdoses in 2016 and at least two-thirds of those were caused by opioids. What should we do about the opioid epidemic?

This forum will discuss this national issue and various courses of action that can be taken to alleviate the problem. All participants must remain respectful and courteous of others’ opinions and ideas. The discussion will be facilitated by a staff member or volunteer of the Library.

The forum is free and requires no registration to attend. Materials and literature about this issue will be provided at the host library, while supplies last, or access the materials at National Issues Forums: Issue Guides. While it is encouraged to read the material before the discussion, it is not required.

For additional information, contact Marcos Martinez at or at 512-974-9859.

Library programs and workshops reflect the creative endeavors and diverse interests of the Austin community.
