International Night at the Library

The International Night at the Library promotes international understanding by providing a program, where students and community members, from the USA and abroad, tell about their experiences in other countries or their home country. These programs are presented the second Tuesday and every fourth Thursday of each month at the Old Town Library and at the Front Range Community College Campus respectively.

Programs start at 7:00 pm and run for approximately one and a half hours. Everyone is more than welcome and there is no entrance fee.

The International Night at the Library is co-sponsored by the Poudre River Library District.

Description:

 Africa Bags is a For Benefit organization focused on fighting poverty and empowering women in 8 rural villages throughout Malawi, Africa. Africa Bags are hand crafted on foot-powered treadle sewing machines and 100% of profits are returned to the people of Malawi! Since Africa Bags began 11 years ago our outreach has expanded to include several new projects including a scholarship program, water purification project, library and literacy program, solar power project, and our two newest ventures, Greening Malawi and Africa Pads. Africa Pads provide vulnerable school girls with reusable pad kits to keep girls in school! And Greening Malawi is focused on fighting deforestation while feeding orphans and providing an income for rural farmers.
