We’re starting French Storytime for the fall season today. Drop in for 10:30am to enjoy French songs, stories and more….all without registration. It’s a great session for all ages, aimed mainly at children who have very little French experience (but you never know…we’ve been surprised some days to have children who are very fluent in French join us, and it’s become extra fun!)
There is no registration, so we’ll see you at 10:30!
We might be closed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find out what’s going on this fall at the library! Check out our latest Fall calendar for kids, and the one for teens and adults. We have plenty of great things coming up—most require registration, so please make note of the dates to start signing up, as things will fill up quickly!
Today is our last French Storytime for a few weeks. We’re taking a short break to plan for summer events, and then we’ll be back at it in July. Watch for our summer program calendar in early June to find out exact start and end dates for summer!
If you’ve been to one of our French Storytime sessions lately, you’ll know that we have a big population of families who want their children to grow up hearing and speaking French. Often, they have no place to go for this outside of home until they go off to school. But we offer a weekly storytime session called “Une Heure de Conte en Francais” on Friday mornings at 10:30am for all ages.
No registration is necessary…just drop in for some stories, a few songs, and lots of laughs (maybe even a little yoga, if our favourite little yoga instructor shows up). This week is our last March session, and since next week is Good Friday, the library will be closed, so no French storytime that day. However, we’ll be back at it in April and go through the end of the month, before taking a quick break to plan for summer.
Our French Storytime is a wonderful regular session for children who are just learning French, or who speak it at home a bit. We read stories in both French and English, sing a few songs, and work on some French vocabulary–all in a fun, relaxed setting. This is a great program for all ages, but especially younger children.
We’re starting again on Friday, Sept. 15 and it’ll run through Nov. 24th–all sessions at 10:30am. No registration is required. Just drop in and be ready to parlez Francais!
Have you been to one of our French Storytimes lately? We’ve been reading stories in French and English, signing songs in both languages, and working on vocabulary. This is the perfect (short) session for young children who might speak some French at home or school, or are trying to learn a few words before school starts. It’s more structured than it used to be, and we always send home a little worksheet to help carry on the idea from the session.
There won’t be any French Storytime during the March Break, so drop in today if you want to see what it’s all about. You don’t have to register…just stop in for our 10:30 session. We hope to see you here!
Our French Storytime is changing a little bit! We’re excited to get back at it, and it will still be on Friday mornings at 10:30am, but we’re going to be working on a more consistent routine during each session.
Since many of our attendees have low French skills, we’ll do stories in both French and English to allow for more comprehension. We’ll also be adding more songs, and a few new ideas to the mix to make it rewarding and positive.
No registration is required, so feel free to drop in from week to week…..but this time, we’ll be doing very similar things each time, so you won’t feel disoriented when you attend. Une Heure de Conte en Francais is for all ages.
