Spanish Storytelling THIS Saturday!

Our Spanish Storytelling Saturdays program, led by Laura Kleinmann, will take place THIS Saturday (March 31) -- not April 7, as previously announced. The family-friendly program, suitable for all ages, begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Takoma Park, Md. Library, and there's NO registration necessary. Just come, ready to have some fun!

Laura, the media specialist at Oyster Bilingual Elementary School in DC, is an accomplished storyteller. Each month, she presents an entertaining program filled with stories and songs. The program is all in Spanish, but Laura's energetic style makes it easily understood even by those who don't speak the language.

If you have any questions about the program, please call the library at 301-891-7259. Hope to see you this Saturday!
