Cotsen offers 'Stories in Many Languages,' April 16 and May 3

German- and Spanish-speaking families in the Princeton community are invited to the Cotsen Childrens Library Monday, April 16, and Thursday, May 3, to listen to "Stories in Many Languages." This pilot series of story hours is presented by Princeton University students who speak and study each programs featured language.

The librarys collection of illustrated childrens literature  encompassing more than four centuries and 40 languages  serves as an inspiration and resource for this series of story hours. During the evening programs, children may encounter older versions of their most beloved stories as well as discover new favorites.

On Monday, April 16, Grit Fiedler, a graduate student on exchange from Germany, and Laura Bohn, a Princeton undergraduate, will present a mix of classic and contemporary tales about friendship and sharing. The stories are appropriate for children ages 4 to 8. On Thursday, May 3, students will present a program in Spanish.

Families are requested to register their children for these programs and obtain times for the events by calling 258-1148.
