ASL Fall Family Fun and Virtual ASL Club

American Sign Language uses hand and face movements as an expression of language for the deaf and hard of hearing. It is one of the top languages learned throughout the country. Check out some American Sign Language movies, ebooks, and books as we get ready for Fall and in anticipation for our first Virtual ASL Club!  ASL Club meets virtually on Thursday, August 6th at 6:00.  Register here to receive the link to attend the Zoom meeting.
