Lawrence school board candidates will participate in town halls Wednesday afternoon hosted by the Lawrence Public Library — first with the Kids’ Action Club, and then a second for the older crowd.

The Kids’ Action Club event, set for 4-5 p.m., is for those ages 8-11.


“Join Ella & Hayden, our Co-Kid Presidents of LPL, to learn about town halls, how school boards work, and chat with school board candidates about their vision for Lawrence schools,” according to the library event page.

Registration is required, and just three seats remained for the online event as of late Tuesday. Sign up at this link or call 785-843-3833.

The second town hall, slated for 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and led by Library Director Brad Allen, is a discussion about candidates’ plans to support our community’s schools and students.

No registration is required for that event. There is a direct link to join the Zoom meeting at this link.
