There are lots of ways for individuals to participate in and support the Choose Civility – The Power of Words – Freeborn.


Complete this brief online form and tell us how you would like to become involved. Choose Civility.  Email the completed form or drop it off at the library!


You can get started immediately with some of the following suggestions:

Review the Principles of Civility. Our initiative is to focus on and begin modeling the respective behaviors. Make them a part of your daily life and encourage others to do the same.

Read any book that focuses on civility. Check out these book lists for books on civility that are great for children teens, and adults. Of course, they  are available at the library.

Put a car magnet on your vehicle – Get a free car magnet at the Albert Lea Public Library and put it on your vehicle as a reminder to you and to encourage your fellow drivers to be more considerate.

Check the Civility Calendar and participate in a Choose Civility event or activity.
