French Storytime

French StorytimeHave 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!

Une Heure de Conte en Francais

French StorytimeOur 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.

Espresso ShotToday is the day!  French storytime is back!  Join us at 10:30am for fun stories, songs and more…en francais!

No registration is necessary, and this is aimed at all ages, but is most appropriate for children aged 3-7, with some knowledge of French.

See you at the library!

French Services Survey

While many of our patrons are enjoying our French Storytime program, “Une Heure de Conte en Francais”, our community partners are continuing to try to improve all of the French services offered to the young people in our community. The Regional French Language Network, serving the South East Region, has a simple 3-question survey they’d love for any of our patrons who use French services in the community, to fill out. It will only take a few minutes.

Grâce à vous, un organisme de votre choix pourrait courir la chance de gagner des livres pour enfant d’un montant de 250,00 $ . De plus, cela aiderait le Réseau régional de langue française du Sud-Est de promouvoir la disponibilité et la qualité des services en français pour les jeunes enfants et leurs familles. Comment faire? En répondant à trois simples questions en ligne : www.rrlfse-on.ca/sondage

If you want more French services in our community, this is a great way to have your voice heard, and to contribute to what we already offer.

Une Heure de Conte en Francais!

With a little over a month to prepare for our 2016 programs, we’re excited to remind people about our wonderful French Storytime! Our lovely volunteer, Agathe, prepares fantastic stories and songs each week, with the group in mind.  While this is open to all ages, it is better if your child has some French language skills to help them understand each story, but Agathe uses a nice combination of French and English to speed things along when necessary.

There is no registration for this program, and it runs every Friday through the winter/spring session, at 10:30am. Come every week, or come once in a while. We’d love the see you!
