Roman explorers briefly took over an Illinois library recently in the form of Latin students from Collinsville High School, who shared lessons in history, culture and language with children. The workshop was sponsored by Ascanius: The Youth Classics Institute, which promotes Latin in elementary schools, and done through the high school's Latin Club. "If they know they're learning something fun, they'll be more excited about the language," said Latin Club co-sponsor and history teacher Kayla Hartmann.
