Camden Conference @ the Library

We are pleased to partner with the Camden Conference for a fourth year to bring a series of original programs to Scarborough. Each explores the theme New World Disorder and America’s Future—the focus of the 2018 conference. Topics will explore shifts in global power and how the United States can remain competitive economically, preserve national security, safeguard American values, and meet dangerous challenges from unstable countries. Our programming will take place over the months of October, November and December of this year. The 31st Annual Camden Conference will be presented live from the Camden Opera House, and live-streamed to the Strand Theatre in Rockland and the University of Southern Maine (location to be announced) February 16 – 18, 2018. It is presented in cooperation with the World Affairs Council of Maine.
 
All events at the Library are free and open to the public. For additional information, contact the Library at 207-883-4723 option 4. To learn more about the Camden Conference and how you can attend, visit their website.

The final program in our Camden Conference series will explore the changing role of the press during the current presidential administration.
