See the WCCLS website at tinyurl.com/3z5473 to download digital audio book and video titles 24/7 to a PC at home, in the office or anywhere in the world. Transfer audio books to your MP3 or burn onto CD for listening on-the-go.

Try Your Luck; Learn A New Skill
Mah Jongg Group Begins At CMCL

Mah Jongg originated in China and has many variations. Over the years (and as it traveled from country to country) it has evolved into a game of skill as well as luck. Skill is necessary to know what to do with the tiles one picks up. Luck is needed because the tiles are all face down and simply picked at random.

Historically in China Mah Jongg was played by men. Fortunes were won and lost during these games. Today everyone plays and money may or may not be involved. But the one fact all agree upon is that Mah Jongg is addictive.

Please come and join us in learning to play Mah Jongg. The sets will be provided, the class will be small (8-10 players) and it should provide hours of entertainment. A set of three classes will be given in June (9th, 16th, 23rd) during the day, 12:30-3PM, and in August (14th, 21st, 28th) during the evening, 6-8PM. To register, call Lane Koniak at (503) 645-0109. Don’t delay – these classes will fill up quickly!
