Many of us studied Spanish in High School, but few have taken the leap to begin speaking it. These classes will give you the practice and confidence to take that step.
Students are requested to have a copy of Colloquial Spanish of Latin America: The Complete Course for Beginners by Roberto Rodsrigues-Saona. This title will be available in the Library in limited quantities.
Reading Together Program: Do you have children between the ages of 9 and 11? Would you like to spend more time reading and discussing books as a family? Then the Together program is for you. Join us for this six-session program where 9 and 11 year-olds and their parents get together to talk about books and ideas. Books, snacks and activities for younger siblings are all provided at each session. We will be focusing on three themes: (2 books for each theme) Being American, Courage and Freedom. Three picture books and three novels will be read. The picture books are La Mariposa, Martin's Big Words and the Girl Who Loved Wild Horses. The novels are Letters from Rifka, Shiloh, and The Friendship. Books will be loaned to each child and adult that registers. In order to ensure a successful program, attendance at all six sessions is required.
Henrietta Lacks was a poor African-American migrant from the tobacco farms of Virginia who died in 1951 of cancer at the age of 30. A sample of her cancerous tissue, taken without her knowledge -- as was the custom then -- turned out to provide scientists one of the most important tools in medicine. Intimate in feeling, astonishing in scope, and impossible to put down, the story of Henrietta Lacks captures the beauty and drama of scientific discovery, as well as its human consequences.
