What foreign countries have you been to?

Do you know somebody who was born in another country?

Can you name one country in each continent: Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America?

Many countries have territories in Antarctica but the continent of Antarctica doesn't have its own countries!

The cultural mix at Palms is amazing and wonderful! It's the best way to learn about cultures other than your own.

Connecting Cultures Exhibit

In the Spring semester the Palms Library puts on a display of Connecting Cultures, celebrating the world's many cultures. Throughout the week, classes visit the Library to view the incredible display of unique and interesting items from many different cultures. Sometimes there are musical performances too.

Parents are welcome to stop by the library during Open House to view the display and enjoy a dessert buffet. If you would like to contribute a dessert from your country of origin for this effort, please bring it by just before 5:00pm.
