Immerse Yourself in a New Culture

Cafecito Amigo, multicultural program

Join our new multicultural program for adults!

Cafecito Amigo, a new multicultural participatory program with Douglas County Libraries, will hold its second session of 2014 on June 2 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM at the James H. LaRue Branch in Highlands Ranch. The theme on June 2 will be Musical Traditions and Storytelling.

Cafecito Amigo, which translates to “Friendly Coffee,” aims to bring together both native English Speakers and English Language Learners who are interested in learning about the culturally and linguistically diverse individuals who are our neighbors. Participants are encouraged to come to the event prepared to both listen to and/or share stories, songs, and enjoy friendly conversation.

Each Cafecito Amigo program will have a theme. On June 2, the theme will be the Musical Traditions and Story. Participants of all backgrounds are encouraged to share a song, bring an instrument, or share a story with a musical theme. Community members from all backgrounds who wish to sing or play a song, share a dance, or tell a story that reflects musical tradition (new or old) are encouraged to contact Tiffany Curtin.

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.

And, of course, a little coffee, tea and light refreshments will be available to participants.
