Brunch will be followed by a short film, What We Can Tell, documenting a University of Akron project about testing DNA.

10:30-11 am - Enjoy brunch and socialize with our community.

11 am- 12 pm - Our Friends of the Library will introduce our main event. In 2017, University of Akron’s

Rethinking Race partnered with Ancestry.com to test the DNA of 30 members from the campus

community. Before and after learning their results, participants were asked what they had to say on race,

ethnicity, culture, and family. The short film What We Can Tell is their story. It asks us all to question

what views we hold – and what lines we have drawn – where race is concerned, and how many of those

lines have to do with what we perceive as our biology, versus our environment. Presented by Visiting

Assistant Professor Heather Pollock.

About the library

The Highland Square community is one of festivals, celebrations, eclectic shopping and dining experiences, and diverse citizenry, from seniors and families with young children to artists and college students and educators. The Highland Square Branch Library is a reflection of this vibrant neighborhood, with a collection that includes rich resources in Holocaust and LGBTQIA (GLS) studies, among many, and a programming schedule that includes writing workshops and opportunities to meet local authors, book discussions, film marathons, art studio experiences for young people, and much more.


Reference assistance, computers and computer classes, WiFi, copiers, scanning, and faxing round out the services provided within the library. The full scope of community participation, however, is seen in local senior care facilities, local schools and preschools, the area farmer's market, and neighborhood festivals where Highland Square Branch Library staff plays an active role in creating experiences for participants of all ages. Visit us soon on the Square.
