Languages & Storytime in Geneva

There’s nothing my little monkeys and I love more than a good story, so we were over the moon to find out about a series of readings for children organized by Geneva’s public libraries around the theme of languages & communication called “Même pas la langue dans la poche….”.

Until the 31st of March 2013, parents and their little buttons will be able to visit some of Geneva’s bibliothèques municipales and take part in free workshops and multilingual storytimes in Russian, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, English and Wolof.

Each session if free of charge and some require advance booking, so check below and reserve your place now !

If you’d like to take part, here’s some dates for your diary:
