Program Description

Event Details

In collaboration with Columbia Association, Howard County Library System's Miller Branch hosts a monthly World Languages Café, on the 2nd Thursday evening, from 7 - 8:45 pm.

Established by the Columbia Association’s International Exchange & Multicultural Program 10 years ago, the World Languages Café (WLC) provides a venue where people meet to practice a world language with fellow community members, facilitated by a native or fluent speaker of that language. Over the years, the WLC has featured languages including American Sign Language, Chinese Mandarin, Dutch, French, Hebrew, Irish Gaelic, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. 

Second Thursdays, 7 - 8:45 pm

The World Languages Café is free, and registration is preferred, but not required. Please indicate in the registration comments field the language you would like to practice. Ages 13+.

We are also seeking language table hosts. If you are interested in connecting with community members by volunteering to host a table in the language of your choice at HCLS Miller Branch, please email Diane.Li@hclibrary.org or call 410-924-2226.
