English Conversation at the Libraries

Come to Conversation Club! Practice speaking English in a friendly group. Everyone is welcome. Come as often as you like. Registration is not required. These sessions are discussions led by volunteers; they are not classes.

It's a good idea to call the branch to confirm that Conversation Club is being held, especially in the summer when some of our volunteers are away.

Our online calendar of events also lists the English Conversation Clubs. See a list of upcoming club meetings at all branches for the next 4 weeks.
