Storytime en Français launches at Kawartha Lakes Public Library

Filed under: ,
January 14, 2016 - Canadian Parents for French (Trillium South), in partnership with Kawartha Lakes Public Library will be presenting Storytime en Français for children in Kindergarten to Grade 3 starting on Saturday, January 30 and running for six weeks. This program will take place in Children’s Services, Lindsay branch library from 10:30 a.m. – 12 noon.

The program is made possible through a grant from Canadian Parents for French, a national network of volunteers who work to provide French language learning opportunities through schools, camps, and extra-curricular activities. CPF has many dedicated members working at the community level to improve the quality of French education across the province and Canada.

Through the storytime program, children will be encouraged to hear French stories and engage in activities in French. High School students from French Immersion will present stories, songs, activities and crafts to the children with the emphasis on fun. Funds from the grant will be used to purchase French language material for the library which will be available to all library patrons.

“This is a great way to engage primary grade students in French and it is a wonderful opportunity for our local high school students to use and improve their French while entertaining the younger children,” said Diane Lansdell, South Area Supervisor for Kawartha Lakes Public Library. “We are very excited about partnering with the local chapter of CPF and making this program and resources available to everyone in Kawartha Lakes.”
