It’s been a while coming, but we’re hoping to start up a French Storytime for our wonderful young patrons. Living in a community with a French school, and French immersion in many of the other schools, we know there is a great need for this type of program. We also have more and more French-speaking families who have moved into the area, and we want to accommodate them, as well. But right now, we do not have anyone on-staff who speaks French, so we’re a little limited. That’s where YOU come in.
We’re looking for someone in our community who might be interested in leading a French storytime once a week, for a 6-week session. Each storytime will last 20 – 25 minutes, and we’ll provide all of the resources and support. All you’d have to do is make the commitment, and join us at the library to make this wonderful program a reality! This would be a wonderful opportunity for someone homeschooling children, a retired community member, or even a high school student looking to earn a few volunteer hours. If you know someone who might be interested, please pass on the information, and have them get in touch with us at the Carleton Place Public Library, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, we’re running a quick questionnaire in the library for our patrons to find out who might be interested, and how we can best serve our young patrons. Please stop in to fill out the questionnaire, which includes questions about when to run it, what age group is looking for a French storytime, and the extent of your child’s French abilities. If you can’t make it in, please let us know and we’ll send you some info.
Yay for French Storytime!
