Fridays from 10:30-11:00 AM
April 28 – May 26, 2023
Join PBLS Staff & Volunteers for a FREE weekly Spanish language program–Spanish Songs & Stories--for families with young children. We are grateful for such wonderful collaborative partners in our community! This FREE community language & culture program is hosted each Friday from 10:30-11:00 AM in the Children’s Room in the Rockland Public Library (April 28 – May 26, 2023).
Each session focuses on basic exposure to foreign language and culture through traditional folk and children’s songs from Spain and Latin America. Vocabulary and themes are reinforced through read aloud activities with children’s books, poems, song lyrics and other authentic sources.

This class is especially fun for parents, grandparents, guardians, and older siblings interested in music, world languages and cultures, and lifelong learning!
