Grand Opening of the New American Corner in Skopje, with US Ambassador Baily

Today the new American Corner in Skopje was dedicated. (Located across Goce Delcev from UKIM, it is not far from the previous Corner.)  US Ambassador Jess Baily and Mayor of the Municipality Center Andrej Zhernovski each said a few words, and then together they cut the ribbon to this beautiful new facility.

The American Corner program is sponsored by the US Department of State. The American Corners are a wonderful way to introduce American culture directly to the people.  In addition to books, movies, games and other materials that can be checked out free of charge and computers that can be used on site, the American Corners host a number of activities, programs, events for the local community.

The new Skopje American Corner is a bright, cheery space, full of resources - free of charge - for those who wish to visit.
