Immerse Yourself in a New Culture

Cafecito Amigo, multicultural program

Cafecito Amigo, which translates to “Friendly Coffee,” aims to bring together our community’s native English Speakers and English Language Learners who are interested in learning together and sharing our various cultures. Participants are encouraged to come to the event prepared to both listen to and/or share stories, food, knowledge, conversation and dance.

Community members from all backgrounds who wish to present are encouraged to contact Tiffany Curtin or register as a performer on Volunteer Connect. Performances may be from 2-20 minutes. Storytellers who have a story with dance as a central theme are encouraged to volunteer!

Everyone is welcome to come to learn and enjoy food and conversation with new friends from various ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. Participants are also welcome to bring a dish to share if they wish or to simply enjoy!

The concept of the Cafecito Amigo program aligns with the Core Values of Douglas County Libraries. At Douglas County Libraries we aim to create meaningful connections that engage the community and foster growth and trust as we explore and discover together.

The program is the creation of Spanish teacher Marta Pardo and Douglas County Libraries' Adult Literacy Specialist, Tiffany Curtin. Questions may be directed to Tiffany Curtin, 303-688-7646 or tcurtin @ dclibraries.org.
