Dover Public Library, 73 Locust Street, Dover
Come expand your understanding about how literature and language function within our communities through this collaboration between Dover Adult Learning Center, Dover Public Library, and UNH’s Community Literacy Center. Youth in kindergarten-3rd grade (and their families) are invited to join a multilingual book club series hosted by the Dover Public Library. Each session will highlight a different language and include a multilingual interactive read-aloud, a song, and a connected art activity. Read-alouds and songs will be presented by community members in their home language. This program seeks to celebrate the languages that are present but not often recognized within our communities.
Registration is not required, but attendees can sign up for session email reminders here.
