The Human Puzzle: The U in You Workshop
Wednesday, Dec. 15, 7-8:30 p.m.
In this interactive and fun workshop, participants will explore what values are, what values are important to each individual and why, how they shape each individual, and how they may shift over the course of one’s life. At this workshop, attendees can expect to have engaging conversations with fellow participants in a small group setting. Individuals are encouraged to show up with an open mind to learn and prepare to have fun, and leave with a richer understanding of oneself and gain a new perspective.

English Language Learners Conversation Circles are designed to provide an opportunity for English Language Learners to practice vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar in a relaxed, comfortable environment. Emphasis will be placed on providing conversation skills that reflect day-to-day life, whether it be a business phone call, a trip to the doctor or simply navigating the grocery store. Flexibility will be emphasized so that the needs of participants can be met. All Conversation Circles will be led by trained community volunteers. Register via the library website.
