Great Decisions 2021 launches virtually to all branches

For the first time, the Eastern Oklahoma Library System will offer the Great Decisions 2021
series to the entire EOLS system through a virtual platform starting in March.

This long-running patron-favorite provides background information and policy options for eight
of the most critical issues facing America today. Further, the Great Decisions sessions serve as
the focal text for discussion groups across the country. The program will meet weekly online to
discuss a different topic beginning March 4 and running through April.

“We are excited to offer this incredibly enriching program to our entire branch network, as it
has traditionally been available only at our Muskogee location,” EOLS Executive Director Mary
Moroney said. “With increased technology and patrons familiar with virtual programming now,
we wanted to expand this offering to everyone in our branch network. We’re hopeful more
people than ever can experience Great Decisions 2021 and see what it is all about.”
