Learn Spanish at the Bloomingdale Library
A list of nearby activities for you and your family.
Yo hablo espanol? (Do you speak Spanish?) If not, there's no better time to learn than the present. The Bloomingdale Free Public Library offers a free adult class this week on Friday at 3:30 p.m.
Learning another language is one way to change your life, but another way is to re-vamp your exercise routine. There are many opportunities nearby to do this, including a beginner's run in Morristown, a morning bike ride, also in Morristown, and a workout for St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Parsippany.
