Trabajadores Unidos de Washington D.C. and the Mt. Pleasant Library are teaming up to offer a series of workshops designed to help construction workers and other trades people improve the math skills they will need for their jobs, such as calculating and measuring.
Each session will begin on a Sunday afternoon, and will consist of three classes.
As usual, all workshops at the library are free! There is also no need to register, just show up.
All workshops will be in Conference Room 1 on the lower level.

Registration opens up on Friday, Jan. 30 at 12 p.m., so grab your library card and head over to Mt. Pleasant Library (or any library!) right after school to sign up with our computers.

Amid the polite conversation lines are about to be drawn, revealing just how far each couple is willing to go in order to protect their own.
