Bilingual Storytimes - NEFLIN workshop in Gainesville

Bilingual Storytimes are the new library frontier. In a world where language barriers become smaller every day, they might also be the future. This full day workshop will expose participants to the tools they will need to develop bilingual storytimes, with a focus on Spanish-English storytimes. We will discuss whys and hows of bilingual storytime as well as themes, book and song/activity selection.

Who Should Attend: This program is for staff in libraries that want to start bilingual storytimes, but would like more help in the development phase. Whether you are bilingual or not, you can start a bilingual storytime at your library!

Pre-workshop assignment: Find and bring with you a simple concept book (colors, numbers, shapes, etc.) - IN ENGLISH!

Trainer: Kio Fuller, Storytime Trainer

Tuesday, June 15, Time: 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
