There are more than 37
million Spanish speakers in the United States, and it is by far the most spoken
non-English language for people over the age of 5.  Spanish is also the
most spoken language of non-Hispanics in households in the United States.

The desire for parents
to give their children exposure to a second language and the rapid growth of Hispanic
populations in the United States is all the more reason to start an engaging
bilingual storytime at your library.  

In this interactive
webinar program, Alicia Lemar will give you a variety of tools that you will be
able to use to:

  • Select appropriate titles for
    Bilingual Storytimes

  • Teach rhymes and songs that
    will help children and adults recall the language

  • Utilize props to further
    enhance language development

Learn the ins and outs
of presenting a bilingual storytime from an experienced children's librarian
and bilingual storytime presenter. We'll cover tips and tricks to make your
bilingual storytime a success - even if you are not a native speaker or have
limited knowledge of Spanish!
