Book Club will be held on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 7:00PM at Barnes & Noble in Willow Grove, PA. The book selected for this month is The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. This suspenseful, true story recounts the remarkable achievement of nine working –class boys from the state of Washington at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany. Set in the darkest hours of the Great Depression, this account is truly riveting. The library has generously lent us eighteen copies of the book.

What is Humanism?

Humanism is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion.

Affirming the dignity of each human being, it supports the maximization of individual liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility.

It advocates the extension of participatory democracy and the expansion of the open society, standing for human rights and social justice.

Free of supernaturalism, it recognizes human beings as a part of nature and holds that values--be they religious, ethical, social, or political--have their source in human experience and culture. 

Humanism thus derives the goals of life from human need and interest rather than from theological or ideological abstractions, and asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.
-- The American Humanist Association
