The Normal City Council approved creating the “All About Normal” Civic Academy on October 16th, 2006. The academy provided an opportunity for interested residents to learn about the inner workings of town government.  And the town might identify residents interested in working on town commissions and committees. The first session began on the evening of February 28th, 2006 for the first class of 20 participants.  The Town repeated the Academy in future years.

The collection consists of presentations, reports, brochures, pamphlets, and newspaper articles.
