Waldo Reads Together book discussion
Do you enjoy reading a good book and having a conversation with others about all you felt and thought about as you read that book? If so, you might want to participate in the 2022 Waldo Reads Together ‘One Book, One Community” program.
“One Book, One Community”, created by the American Library Association, is a book discussion program that offers a community-wide read of one-designated book over the same period of time with discussions and related activities about the book’s themes. Waldo Reads Together is our local version of this program, offered last year for the first time through the initiative of Aging Well in Waldo County and partner organizations to help alleviate some social isolation and connect community members.
Plans are underway for a return of this program in March-April 2022 as a program of Literacy Volunteers. Its goal once again is to connect community members through the discussion of a novel that offers a good read on a timely theme. Book discussions will be guided by a trained facilitator and offered via Zoom or in various face-to-face settings. The committee has not yet chosen the title for this program but if you are interested in participating and learning more, then please contact Literacy Volunteers of Waldo County at email@example.com or www.waldoreads.org or 930-2436.
How would like to learn to create software rather than just use it? In this beginer computer programming course students will learn Python, the most popular programming language in the world. The first half of each class will be instruction. During the remainder, students will work on individual projects with one-on-one assistance from the instructor. The instructor will provide a range of project ideas, but students are encouraged to bring in their own interests to work on – we’ll figure out how to turn those interests into a project. Because projects may require some at-home work, students are required to bring their own laptops to class. To ensure students receive adequate mentoring time on their projects, class size is limited to six students. Call for more information.
