An open house playgroup for children will be held from 10 a.m. to noon March 21 in the large meeting room at the Eldersburg library branch, 6400 W. Hemlock Drive. Mothers can bring their children to play, read and sing with group members and their children.

`Singles Voices' speakers explore cultural diversity

Carroll Community College will present free "World View" courses and programs designed to bridge differences and cultivate understanding among cultures.

The first program is "Single Voices," a series of discussions centered on the personal experiences and perceptions of individuals living and participating in diverse cultures. Two talks will be held in Room L287 on the college campus in Westminster.

Pete Beebe, a Washington graphic artist, will present "A White Traveler on the Red Road" at 7 p.m. Friday. He will describe his experiences as a sundancer at Chief Leonard Crowdog's Paradise on the Lakota Indian Reservation in Rosebud, S.D.

Michael Edwards will present "Marching with the Zapatistas" at 7 p.m. March 28. A Northern Virginia videographer and representative of the nonprofit organization Circulos Inc., he spent two weeks in Mexico last year marching to Mexico City to support and document the Zapatista movement for freedom and equality for Mexico's native people.

Reservations are required. Information: 410-386-8100.
