The Davenport Public Library, in cooperation with Senior Star Living at Elmore Place, is offering a new program this spring called “Travelearning: Exploring the Globe on Screen.” This program happens on the first Wednesday of each month, March through November, at 2:00 p.m. at the Eastern Avenue Branch Library (6000 Eastern Avenue).
“Many people love to travel, but circumstances such as lack of money or poor health can sometimes get in the way,” Angela Campbell, library pr/programming coordinator said. “This program explores a different location each month through beautifully produced movies and documentaries designed to educate and entertain interested travelers.”
Upcoming destinations include:
April 6 – Jerusalem
May 4 – Mexico
June 1 – Jamaica
July 6 – National Parks of the United States
August 3 – Australia
September 7 – Greece
October 5 – Transylvania
November 2 – China
Travelearning is a free program open to everyone. For more information, call 563-326-7832, or visit www.davenportlibrary.com.
