Lifting Arabic Language Awareness is intended to introduce, teach, and grow the Arabic language skills among members of the Winooski, VT community.  Adult participants will have the opportunity to learn Modern Standard Arabic through weekly conversational classes led by a qualified instructor, while children and their families will be invited to attend bilingual story-times followed by an activity centered on the culture, practices, and traditions of the Middle East. To support these programs, the Winooski Memorial Library plans to create resource kits available for checkout that will support Arabic literacy routines for early childhood learners.
