The Palmdale City Library, located at 700 E. Palmdale Blvd., will host the next meeting of “Young Americans,” a civics discussion group exclusively for teens ages 13 to 19, on Monday, April 17 from 4 to 5 p.m.

This month’s discussion will look at the issues facing the mentally ill in society, asking what they face and how government should provide assistance.

Pizza will be available for participants as well.

“There are a lot of people out there who need help,” said the group’s leader, Samuel Fewell. “Come in and share your opinion on how best to help them!”

“Young Americans” civics-based conversations address topics such as personal finance, the workings of the government, social media, and what it means to be an informed, active citizen. “Young Americans” meetings take place on the third Tuesday of every month.

The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
