SLO News in Missoula

The Missoula Public Library has two exciting new additions to our Spanish Language Outreach efforts!

1. We've just received the first copy in our subscription to People en EspaƱol.

2. Next month we'll be starting a bi-monthly Talk Time, an informal conversation table for English language learners, facilitated by a TEFL-certified volunteer. Talk Time will be held on the first and third Tuesdays of every month at 7:00 p.m. We're working with the ESOL coordinator at Missoula's continuing education center and the English Language Institute at the University of Montana to help spread the word.

We are also already thinking ahead to programming for Spanish Heritage Month 2009 (Sept. 15-Oct. 15).

I'm curious to know what other libraries have in store for their SLO outreach in 2009!
