Library Storytelling Morning activity for February 2014

Come to the “tellebration” with us! Monthly Saturday morning meetings from October to June where kids can enjoy selected stories in English, this time with Carrie and Trisha as storytellers.

Recommended for children between the ages of 4 – 8. Forty children per session and two adults per child maximum. 45 minutes approx.

The activity forms part of the library services for library members, with an optional 2 for 1 registration. This means each child with a library card can bring one guest.

Library members will need to show their library card and send an e-mail to biblioteca@iie.es confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week of the Storytelling morning.

Non-members who want to participate have a symbolic associated cost of 3€ per child for each session. The tickets can be obtained at the library check-out desk the same week of the Storytelling morning up until 15 minutes before the beginning of the activity.

If at some point the number of members registered reaches the maximum capacity limit we will announce that tickets are sold out trough the IIE Facebook page.

(Con la esperanza de empezar de nuevo un viejo burro deja la granja para viajar a Bremen donde se unirá a una banda de música. En su camino se encuentra a un perro, un gato y un gallo. Con un rebuzno, un ladrido, un maullido y un “kikiriki” enseguida se hacen amigos y deciden viajar juntos para unirse a la banda de la ciudad de Bremen).
