   3:30 PM  -  4:45 PM Public Meeting-EDDIE EAGLE  
   

The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program is a gun accident prevention program developed by a task force made up of educators, school administrators, curriculum specialists, urban housing safety officials, clinical psychologists, law enforcement officials and National Rifle Association firearm safety experts. It began in 1988 with one mission: teach children four simple, easy to remember steps so they know what to do if they ever come across a gun. In 2015 the NRA introduced a fresh, new Eddie and added some friends—his Wing Team. Though Eddie has evolved, his mission has not. In the brand new video, Eddie and his friends remind children that if they see a gun, they need to Stop! Don’t touch. Run away. Tell a grown-up. You talk about stranger danger, Internet safety, fire drills and more with children...so why not include gun safety? The program makes no value judgments about firearms, no firearms are ever used, and it covers an important topic that needs to be addressed with kids. Like swimming pools, electrical outlets and matchbooks, firearms are simply treated as a part of everyday life. With firearms found in about half of all American households, it’s a stance that makes sense.

Venga a la biblioteca a practicar su inglés oral en un entorno seguro con un instructor capacitado que dirigirá la conversación, responderá a las preguntas y le ayudará a aumentar su confianza.

Hablar un idioma extranjero no solo se trata de conocer las reglas gramaticales y el vocabulario. La confianza, la comprensión cultural y la comodidad son esenciales para poder dominar verdaderamente el idioma. Venga a la biblioteca a practicar su inglés oral en un entorno seguro con un instructor capacitado que dirigirá la conversación, responderá a las preguntas y le ayudará a aumentar su confianza. Esta no es una clase formal de inglés como lengua extranjera, sino que es una oportunidad para relacionarse con otras personas, aprender sobre los Estados Unidos y practicar el inglés.

Apto para: estudiantes de inglés de niveles principiante avanzado, intermedio y superior

Biblioteca de Lakewood, Viernes de 1:00 a 2:00 p. m. (cerrado el 24 de noviembre por el Día de Acción de Gracias), 10200 W. 20th Ave. Lakewood, CO 80215

There’s more to speaking a foreign language than just grammar and vocabulary. Confidence, cultural understanding and comfort are key to truly becoming fluent. Come to the library to practice speaking English in a safe environment with a trained facilitator who will guide conversation, answer questions and help you grow in confidence. This is not a formal ESL class - it’s an opportunity to connect with others, learn about America and practice English.
