Japanese Class kicks off summer library institute

Last May 16, the Teen Summer Library Experience and Adult Summer Library Institute kicked off with a free Introduction to Japanese class taught by Yoko Fujioka-Kern.

The Joeten-Kiyu Public Library invites the community to attend the remaining classes: this Wednesday, June 6, and Friday, June 8.

In a series of eight classes, participants will learn the basics of Japanese such as basic pronunciation, Japanese history, culture, and simple vocabulary. Because it is part of the Collaborative Summer Library Institute, participants are able to count this class toward completing their reading log. Contact Librarian II Emily Van Weerdhuizen for more information about the free Teen and Adult Summer Library Program at (PR)
