Bilingual Preschool Storytime: Emotions/Las emociones

Join us on Monday, June 19th at 1:15 PM for a bilingual Preschool Storytime all about feelings and emotions. We will be singing and reading in both English and Spanish. This is a ticketed program, so make sure you pick up a ticket from the children’s area before it starts. Preschool Storytime is geared towards children ages 3-6 years.

Hello, I don't understand why

Hello, I don't understand why you would change the format of the preschool program. It was fine being all English. This is not a good format being Spanish and English. My son has enough problems with English and now you throw Spanish into it. It doesn't make sense. I don't like it! Tim K.

Thank you for writing to us.

Thank you for writing to us. During most of the year, we host a bilingual story time once a month in the evenings, but because of the additional programming for children and the demands on staff during HCPL’s Summer Reading Program, we cannot offer that evening session. But because it is very popular with many of our customers, we are offering one bilingual story time a month in the regular English-language time slot in June and July. The July session will be held on July 10. 

We take early literacy and language development very seriously. Both are at the core of our mission, and we would never do anything to hinder any child’s language development.  Studies have time and again shown that bilingual education, especially during the pre-school years, is highly beneficial.

We hope you and your child will continue to join us for any story times you choose.
