2023 International Year

Intro

It is more important than ever that students understand their place in the wider world, not just central Texas.  Every two weeks, Golemon Library features a different country and culture through the eyes of a special event.  We will look at why it developed, why it is important to the people, how it is celebrated, and how it fits into the local culture.

Overview information about each of our countries is listed here, with links to the events, places, and people who make it unique.  Learn about the work through the Library.
