The next We Love Hartford Project feature isn't just a gem in the city of Hartford, it is a place like no other! And I am thrilled to highlight a fun free opportunity offered at this beautiful facility. The Hartford Public Library's (HPL) main branch is simply amazing! The capital city is fortunate to have such a beautiful facility and powerful resource in the heart of Hartford. It is a strong foundation for other Hartford branches as well as the individuals who work, live, learn and play here! Have you seen this great promo reel for HPL? A place like no other:
What I am most excited about (though there are many reasons to love this place) is the FREE Salsa Social classes held the 3rd Tuesday of every month (next date June 16th at 6pm). Check out photos taken by the We Love Hartford Project's very own photographer Humans of Hartford:
Open session welcomes dancers of all levels and are free of charge. Dancing and teaching for over twenty year, Instructor Ray Bermudez shares his passion for salsa at these open dance sessions. I have marked my calendar and look forward to participating on Tuesday, June 16th at 6pm.
There are other awesome events on the HPL calendar including Art Exhibition, Story Telling Clubs and much more. In addition to being a tradition library, you can enjoy services such as U.S. passports, Workshops, ESL Classes and The Kitchen at the HPL (Monday-Friday 8-4). I'm personally a fan of the HPL and have held my monthly Not-So-Typical Autism Support Groups here for two years. I hope you will visit and take advantage of the wonderful opportunities offered by the Hartford Public Library.
