We’re entering a new era in our life! In September, our beloved American Center will begin renovations, which promise amazing opportunities for you. Here’s a peek at what to expect:
✓ A new Makerspace with 3-D printer and other fantastic toys!
✓ Contemporary and hip furniture!
✓ New expanded work stations!
✓ And much, much more!
Are you excited yet? We sure are. But fret not! During our renovations, we will still be conducting events with amazing guests and speakers, clubs and other activities. (And do we have a great program for you this fall!) These events may take place in a different hall, but in the same library building, thanks to the generosity of the Library of Foreign Literature. Please stay tuned to our websites and announcements for more information.
We thank you for your patience during these renovations and greatly look forward to sharing the new us with the new you!
Due to the upcoming renovations the checked-out books and DVDs should be returned to the Center till the 1-st of October, 2014. Thank you!
The Outer Banks of North Carolina: Islands that Made History with Nadia Leschenko April 7, 2012
Many foreigners do not know about one of the most beautiful parts of the United States: the Outer Banks of North Carolina. These islands spread across 200 miles as barrier islands off the coast of the state and are a popular tourist destination for many Americans. It has unique flora, animal wildlife and weather patterns.
The Outer Banks played an important role in American history as well. One sneak peek: the Wright brothers’ first flight took place from these islands in 1903.
Come join us Saturday, April 7th, at 12 p.m. to find out many more unique things about these beautiful islands! This presentation will be given by Nadia Leschenko Kobus, alumna of the FLEX program and former Coordinator at American Councils for International Education, who is a longtime resident of these Islands.
Lecture will be in English.
