Story Hour: Fairy Tales & Fables (ages 3–5)

29 September 2021 @ 14 h 30 min - 15 h 30 min

For ages 3–5


3–5 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for an interactive Story Hour outdoors in a small group! This program lasts one hour, and features songs, stories and hand rhymes in English. Each Story Hour is hosted by one of our children’s librarians with the help of a Library volunteer. In the event of rain the event will be moved indoors to our Children’s Library.

For this Story Hour, we’ll read stories about diggers, dump trucks, and other big trucks and construction vehicles. This Story Hour will be hosted by Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste Rhoads, with the help of Library volunteer Mary Wessels. 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.

This Story Hour is free for Library members, and registration is required. Registered participants will be sent an email with more information about where we will meet. Registration closes 24 hours before the event.

Each parent/guardian is responsible for their own child, and is expected to remain with their child for the duration of this activity. Caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with these guidelines so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons. If you have questions about events and/or collections for children and teens, please contact Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste Rhoads: celeste@americanlibraryinparis.org.

We are an independent, nonprofit organization. With your continued support, we are able to provide over 200 programs each year for ages 0-18. If you would like to support the Library, you can donate here to help sustain this vital institution in its 100th year of service.
