- Do you love cinema from around the world?
- Looking to meet people from different cultures?
- Are you trying to learn Spanish or travel in Spanish-speaking countries?
Spanish Film Night, a new monthly program at the library, will please movie buffs, help language learners, and bring together Spanish speakers from many different backgrounds around the globe.
Unloose the reigns holding in your inner armchair traveler. Come to the library for a screening of a classic Spanish language movie on the library’s large screen.
In January we will screen a Mexican classic, starring the beloved Cantinflas, Mario Moreno, who plays a lowly cobbler who soars on the trapeze when the circus comes to town. Future selections will include films from Spain, Argentina, and other Latin American countries.
Another program the library now offers is a bi-monthly evening Spanish language story hour. High school Spanish students from FHHS and members of the Latino community are stepping up, volunteering to read aloud to promote literacy and the love of reading among young Spanish speaking children.
The next bilingual story hour is scheduled at 6:30 pm Tuesday January 24 and the theme will be “Snow.” Evening stories are followed by a short craft activity, just like the preschool Storytime the library offers at 10:30 am. Friday mornings The library is working to expand its collection of Spanish movies in the Spanish collection.
Suggestions are always welcome.
