Practice Your English

Every Saturday, except holiday weekends, Douglas County Libraries hosts casual drop-in sessions for anyone age 17 and older to practice English. All levels and abilities are welcome.

Great Books Discussions -- Parker Library

Following the general open-ended discussion guidelines of the Great Books Foundation (GBF), the Parker Great Books Group meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at the Parker Library (unless otherwise noted). As the GBF guidelines suggest, participants are expected and encouraged to meet with the group regularly and to have read the material thoroughly in order to participate in the discussions. Of course, emergencies happen and life occasionally gets in the way; so, if you will be unable to attend, we ask that you notify one of the facilitators by phone or email.
