These days, it really pays to know a second language. I remember taking about four years of Spanish back in school, but it wasn't very conversational, and I don't remember a whole lot. I wish I had paid better attention. Have you been thinking about learning Spanish?

Adriance Memorial Library on Market Street in Poughkeepsie is helping you brush up on conversational Spanish from noon - 1:30 pm starting this Friday, March 8 and every Friday through March 29. Regular practice is the best way to learn a new language. Meet weekly with their experienced instructor to practice Spanish conversation with other language enthusiasts. It's a lunch and learn, so participants are welcome to bring a bag lunch to each session.

There is no registration required. For more information call Jessica Sherman at (845) 485-3445 extension 3315 or email To find out about other events offered at Adriance Memorial Library, or other libraries in the district, visit their facebook page.
