What's New!  

TED Talks

To continue in November

Have you heard about "TED Talks?"  In 1984 TED Talks was established to bring Technology, Entertainment and Design information to the curious and open-minded public.  These are 20 minute videos that cover a huge array of subjects and information, and always lead to lively discussions and comments.  The Outreach program at the Center will be having a casual TED Talks group meet in September  for one hour to view one of these videos and follow with a  discussion.  There is no fee.  Please sign-up at front desk.
