Multilingual Storytime flyer

On Monday September 24th starting at 4:30 pm, join us in the Frost Library Friendly Periodicals Reading Room and listen to children's books read in a variety of languages by Amherst College students and local elementary school students. This event is free and open to the local community. Children of all ages are welcome. Snacks will be provided. Multilingual Storytime is the culminating celebration of the Amherst College/Fort River Elementary School Multilingual Children's Book Collection Exhibit, on display in Frost Library during the month of September. The exhibit is a sampling of the books included in a collection created during the winter 2018 interterm course, Building a Multilingual Children's Book Collection. Students researched and selected a list of the greatest children's books around the world to share with the community here in Amherst. The collection will be expanded to include more languages. Please offer your own suggestions. For more information visit tiny.cc/multilingualbooklist
