Criolla Spring Story Hour Celebration

Biblioteca Criolla capped off its 2018 Spring Story Hour series with a special awards ceremony held on Tuesday, May 15. Criolla hosted 63 children and 47 adults to celebrate another successful Story Hour season.

This year’s Tuesday and Thursday Spring Story Hours have grown exponentially, so we added a new session to specifically accommodate newborns to age 2: “Bebé Rockero | Baby Rock.” We are happy to continue serving three neighboring day care centers, as well as stay-at-home parents and caretakers with eager children that come faithfully to Biblioteca Criolla.

On May 15, we wanted our little patrons to feel extra special. We awarded three gift baskets to our top readers. The awards encouraged and motivated our young readers to check out books! The winners of the beautiful baskets were thrilled with their prizes. All of our readers received a special certificate in recognition of their hard work – the first of many they are sure to earn throughout their academic lives. The happy faces of the children receiving their awards were priceless!

We also celebrated with a singalong and dancing to favorite songs in Spanish and English. After the awards ceremony, everyone was treated to Domino’s Pizza, cake, special treats, fruits and much more.

There is always something fun happening at your local library!
