Conversation exchanges are very popular in the libraries. As well as practising your language skills with native speakers through conversation, you can also learn much about the culture, politics and economics of that country. They are held in Ballymun, Cabra, Central Library, Coolock, Donaghmede, Pearse Street, Pembroke, Raheny and Walkinstown libraries. Dates and times may vary (see below); it is advisable to check with location in advance.
