everyone who takes part gets a Participant’s Notebook to help them along the

involved. Discussions take place at each meeting, and participants also deliver
short impromptu and prepared speeches while learning to apply the principles of
listening, thinking and speaking.

Library for nine weeks, beginning Saturday, September 7 to November 2, 2013.
The sessions will be held in the Auditorium at the Library’s Four Corners
Branch, 65 Queen St. E from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Space is limited to 24 teens. Youth interested in this free
offering should register starting August 6, by visiting one of the Library
locations or calling the Library at (905) 793-4636.
