Each year the Gossels Fund for Human Dignity supports a program at the Library. The Gossels Fund was established by the Gossels families “to foster and augment programs and activities that will encourage people to respect, treasure, and protect the rights of all human beings to live in dignity, freedom, and peace,” and our annual Gossels Program seeks to support the mission of the fund by presenting a program that encourages the audience to reflect on issues of human dignity.
