Dual Language Storytime – Hora de cuentos en dos idiomas

“Children of all ages are welcome.

All ages storytime which uses both English and Spanish to present books, rhymes and songs. It differs from a traditional bilingual storytime in that some material is presented in English while other material is presented in Spanish, allowing for a natural transition between stories and activities and exposing children to both languages in an inviting environment.

Esta hora de cuentos es para niños y niñas desde bebitos hasta de edad escolar y para sus padres. Se presentarán libros, rimas, y canciones en inglés y en español. Difiere de un programa tradicionalmente bilingüe en que el material no va a ser traducido de un idioma al otro, sino que presentaremos algunas cosas en inglés y otras en español empapando a los niños en los dos idiomas. De esta manera ellos se sentirán cómodos usando los dos idiomas.

Seating is limited at all programs. Please arrive a few minutes early to gain entrance. Note that in some locations, free tickets (available in the branch on the day of the program) will be required for admittance in order to ensure safety. If you have a group of five or more children, please call the branch and ask to speak with the Youth Librarian to make arrangements. Groups of five or more that arrive without contacting us in advance may not be seated due to space limitations.”
