Little Stars Come Out to Receive Their 2013 Story Hour Awards at Biblioteca Criolla on May 21st & 23rd

Biblioteca Criolla culminated its Spring 2013 Preschool Story Hour sessions with a special program and recognition award ceremony held on Tuesday, May 21st and Thursday, May 23rd. With 54 children and 29 adults attending over the two sessions, these special ceremonies filled La Criolla with smiles, laughter and the happy noise that comes from so many people!

Ms. Beatriz Urrutia, new to Biblioteca Ciolla, has been enriching its story time sessions, and she has gained a following of eager parents, nannies and daycare providers to our sessions.  Beatriz reads stories that not only educate but engage Criolla’s little participants with enthusiasm and love.

At the May 21 & 23 ceremonies, Biblioteca Criolla Staff wanted their little patrons that come every Tuesday and Thursday to feel extra special. After singing their favorite songs in Spanish, finger plays and a little dancing, the children were awarded a medal and a certificate.  Assistant Library Director Sonia Araujo was invited to help award our participants, with this award, it is hoped, being the first of many they will be given throughout their academic lives. The happy faces of the children receiving the awards were priceless!

Afterward, everyone enjoyed cupcakes and apple juice, which were available from the generous donations of the families who made it possible for the Biblioteca Criolla Staff to purchase the medals, cupcakes, juices and other things awarded to the children.

A Special Thank You goes to Beatriz Urrutia for making it one of the most successful story hours in Biblioteca Criolla; Assistant Library Director Sonia Araujo, for her support and encouragement; the Millia Family; the Bernett Family; the Mehra Family; the Hernandez-Arza Family; and Johaina Velez, for support in all our programs and story hour sessions.
