If we're not in the room right inside the front door, enter the main library, pass the front desk, then turn left. We're in a room on the far wall after you make that left.

What members say about Speakers League

Since joining Speaker's League, I have not only improved my speaking skills but also my writing, vocabulary, creativity and confidence.
Sarah H. (Age 15)
 
Even if you aren't a fan of public speaking (I wasn't at first), you will still like this. It's entertaining and fun to participate!
Lily H. (Age 13)
 
When I joined the Speakers League and had my first speech, I was really nervous.  Now I'm still nervous. But really confident.
Ethan R (Age 10)
 
I was in the Speakers League for nearly two years. What I enjoyed the most was how when you get to write a speech, you could, basically, write about whatever topic you wanted, what you were interested in. A second activity that I believe a lot of people would look forward to is the voting system. There is always a winner, and it's just really exciting to vote and see who gets the ribbons.
Elizabeth R (Age 11)
 
"Hospitable, fun, and informative.”
Sam B. (Age 13)

What parents say...

I had signed my girls up for this Speaker league, in order to help them develop comfortable attitudes when presenting an "oral" task in front of a group of people. I believe it gives them confidence in continuing to feel that they "own" their information about various subjects. Speaker League helps give them that confidence and power to express themselves in an organized manner, a worthwhile tool to be used in the future.

"Speaker's League has been such an asset for both of my kids and we are grateful for all they've learned.”
