Our ESL Coffee and Conversation has been a lot of fun at the Saddletowne library, but several of our customers have asked if we could offer it at a later time instead.

We certainly think we'll have even more fun if we have more people visit, so starting this Tuesday March 13th, we are moving our meeting time to 6:30 - 8:00 PM!

So stop by after dinner and enjoy practising English with your new friends!

See you Tuesday!
