The German storytelling hour
aims to be a meeting for children aged 3 to 5. Starting at 11 am, reading is the guest of honor: stories and fairy tales from our library will amaze your little loved ones. Arts & crafts will follow the reading.
There is a limit of 16 children per reading.
Each child must be accompanied by an adult.
This event is meant for German families as well as for families who would like to introduce German to their children.
