Who Is John Galt?

Countdown to Un-Shushed Relaunch: 7 Days

If you already know the answer, you’ll probably be excited to find out that, after 54 years, Atlas Shrugged is finally scheduled to hit the big screen! You’ve probably just started wondering how they plan to cram an epic novel like this into a movie. The answer? The same way they always do—it’s going to be a trilogy! Part I is scheduled to come out April 15th. You can find out more about the movie here.

If you didn’t know the answer—or if you’d just like to refresh your memory before the movie comes out—you can pick up a copy of Ayn Rand’s 1957 novel here at the library. You can find it in the Adult Fiction collection on the fourth floor, or you can have us help you—just come to the Ask Us desk!

ESL Classes: Hablar—Aprender—Practicar.

Countdown to Un-Shushed Relaunch: 20 Days

Our first ESL class was last night! We saw an attendance of 19 for the 2-hour class, which focused on conversation. Some of the activities included a PowerPoint presentation, a question-and-answer game, and a discussion of a song’s lyrics—there was even a video presentation of the song!

Estamos practicando.

We will be holding another class with very similar activities next Wednesday, March 16th, from 6:30-8:30. If you’re interested, you may sign up at the Ask Us desk on the first floor.

These classes are the only two that are being offered right now. They’re kind of a “test run” for us. After next week’s class, we will be taking a survey. Your input is important—it will help us as we begin to develop a more permanent ESL program!

We hope to see you next week!
