World Languages Storytime Festival Set for Saturday at Worcester Public Library

Friday, August 26, 2016

 

The Youth Services Department at the Worcester Public Library will host a World Languages Storytime Festival and Cultural Celebration on Saturday, August 27 at 2 p.m. at the Main Library. 

The event will include storytelling in Spanish, Albanian, Vietnamese and Portugese and will be accompanied by musical entertainment, face painting and refreshments. 

The Worcester Public Library has been offering World Languages Storytimes in Vietnamese and Portugese for the last two years . 

“It is important to be inclusive in offering these and all types of services to children and families. This grant gave us the opportunity to develop a reciprocal relationship between the Library and these communities. While attending World Language Storytimes they have become aware of the Library’s rich services, and we have learned through the presenters and participants the value of their communities to our library,”  said Iris Delgado, Youth Services Manager.

Saturday’s event will include guest performances from the Southeast Asian Coalition and members from Worcester’s Brazilian Festival.

History of the Event 

World Languages Storytimes began in October 2014. This two year project made it possible for kids and families who don't come to the library often to be exposed to the Library and its services while attending story times in their own language. 

it also allowed this new audience to engage in other cultural and educational events at the library. 

Community members were invited to take part as presenters conducted story times in their native languages with the help of a Children's Librarian.
