Little Amigo's Story Time!

  Hola...When children learn a second language at a young age it is as easy as learning a first language and also allows them to optimize their learning potential.  Little Amigos is a story time presented in English with one word each week spoken in Spanish throughout.  For example: the theme is “dog”.  The word "dog" will be replaced with the word “perro” whenever it is in the story, song, finger play and activity. This is a great opportunity each week to expose your young child to a second language which they can continue to build on as they get older.  Little Amigos is for children ages 3 – 5 and meets every Tuesday at 9:30 am in the Children's Area.  Esperamos contar con tu presencia¡  (hope to see you there!)

Tutors Needed!

We need volunteer English as a Second Language tutors! You may know that we have an ongoing ESL and English literacy program here at the library. Newcomers to our country are paired with community volunteers and have lessons at the library at mutually convenient times. You don't have to speak another language to become a tutor; we provide learning materials, training, and ongoing support for you, and you get the immense satisfaction that comes from having an intense encounter with a person from another culture who is learning to embrace ours. If you're interested in volunteering, call Suellen at 832-559-4220.
