Welcome to the website for Pushing the Limits, a public library program series for adults that combines reading, video and discussions.

Since the beginning of time humans have imagined and achieved pushing the boundaries of the physical world. We want to be stronger, smarter, and more aware; and we create stories to bring those dreams to life. But many of those dreams are no longer just stories. With great new advances in science and technology, we are finding ways in which all of us are able to push the limits every day.

Pushing the Limits explores these fictional and real-life stories in a four-part thematic series:


The program is supported by:

  • A selection of popular book titles
  • Customized, short videos
  • Suggested discussion questions
  • A fully customizable marketing toolkit
  • A professional development series with webinars, videos and online support materials for librarians

Pushing the Limits will give you tools and materials to host engaging adult programs, which will bring community members together in your library.
