RED HOOK — Latin is back. Latin language instructor Ann Patty will return to teach a weekly class, "Ecce Lingua Latina," from 5-6 p.m. Mondays from Sept. 19-Dec. 19 at the Red Hook Public Library, 7444 S. Broadway in Red Hook.

Adults and students in grades 7 and up can learn the language of Caesar. Latin gives students of all ages an advantage in languages, literature, science, and beyond. Required reading from “Lingua Latina per se Illustrata” by Hans Orberg will be assigned. Students are encouraged to purchase the text, but the library will have a copy available for use.

This program is free, but space is limited. Call the library at 758-3241 to register. Preference will be given to students who have taken Patty’s previous classes.
