Democracy: Home

On Democracy

The United States is a representative republic, but we aren't the first. Democracy--and even representative republics!--have a long history, and we've got some of it on our shelves! (And on this guide.) You'll also find selected literature, picture books, and films about everything from citizenship and elections to voting and beyond.

As always, start here, and go further! This is just a small selection of what is available both in our library and in the I-Share system.

In the mood for a list? We've got you covered.
