Welcome to Gila County Library District's New Website
iCivics prepares young Americans to become knowledgeable, engaged 21st century citizens by creating free and innovative educational materials.
In 2009, Justice Sandra Day Connor founded iCivics to reverse Americans declining civic knowledge and participation. Securing our democracy, she realized, requires teaching the next generation to understand and respect our system of governance. Today iCivics comprises not just our board and staff, but also a national leadership team of state supreme court justices, secretaries of state, and educational leaders and a network of committed volunteers. Together, we are committed to passing along our legacy of democracy to the next generation.
In four years, iCivics has produced 18 educational video games as well as vibrant teaching materials that have been used in classrooms in all 50 states. Today we offer the nations most comprehensive, standards-aligned civics curriculum that is available freely on the Web.
When kids are curious about certain things, it can be tough to find an age-appropriate way to teach them. Most of the many agencies of the United States government have created web pages designed specifically with kids in mind. These sites offer fun and safe ways for kids to explore the functions of various government agencies and to learn about how these agencies work for everyone as a part of our society.
