Fairy Tales & Fables
For ages 3–5
3–5 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for an interactive Story Hour in a small group! This program lasts an hour, and features songs, stories, and hand rhymes in English.
For this Story Hour, enjoy retellings of fairy tales and fables, including a picture book version of The Tortoise and the Hare by Caldecott Medalist Jerry Pinkney. This Story Hour will be hosted by Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste Rhoads, with the help of Library Intern Pallas-Amenah Morgan. They will read books and lead you and your little one in songs and hand-rhymes during a live, interactive session. This participatory program is intended to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Plan to join in, sing along, and move around, and model movement and listening for your little one. We ask that caregivers put away their phones and other devices for the duration of this program.
This event is for Library members, and advance registration is required. In compliance with French regulations, a pass sanitaire is required for all visitors ages 12+. Visitors ages 6+, staff, and volunteers are required to wear masks on the premises.
Caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with the Library Policy for Children so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons. Questions about collections and programs for teens can be sent to the Library’s Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager, Celeste Rhoads: firstname.lastname@example.org.
