American Corner Oujda

American Corners are a small, American-style library located within a local partner organization, usually a library.  It is intended to be a friendly, accessible space, open to the public. American Corners are a joint partnership project that promotes cooperation and understanding between the United States and Morocco.

It serves as regional resource centers for information and programs highlighting American culture, history, current events, and government. American Corners typically host discussion groups, seminars, digital video conferencing, poster exhibits, and meetings with U.S. and local specialists on a wide range of American-focused topics. They act as a regional repository for the use of American-themed books, videos, and provide free internet access and educational materials.  Access to American Corner’s collection is free and open to all interested citizens.

It is the first place to visit for accurate and up-to-date information about political, economic, cultural, educational, and social trends in the United States.  It also offers English speakers a variety of topics and hosts a range of classes, clubs, and activities. Speakers can lead discussions on topics as varied as U.S. Sports, the U.S. Constitution, U.S. exchange programs, holiday traditions in the U.S., and more. In addition, many American Corners sponsor clubs around American music, poetry, and videos, which allow people to practice their English and learn more about American culture and traditions.

Currently there is one American Corner in Morocco in the town of Oujda.  For more details on services and current programs at the American Corners in Morocco, please contact the IRC of Casablanca or American Corner staff directly using the information provided below:
