Family Literacy Fiesta at Wheaton Library

  • Wheaton Public Library Interim Branch 2400 Arcola Avenue Wheaton, MD, 20902 United States (map)

Interact returns to the Wheaton Library for another fun-filled Family Literacy Fiesta! 

Join us at the Wheaton Interim Library to share the joy of stories! In our February Books Alive! event, InterAct Story Theatre's Artistic Director Ali Oliver-Krueger leads kids and adults in an interactive Literacy Fiesta, bringing stories to life through creative drama. Join us at the Library and beat the winter blues with us...we'll act, sing, and dance our way through favorite folk tales and chase the chills away! In these interactive workshops, kids and adults work together to explore a folk tale or children's story, act out the stories in our own words, and maybe even make up stories of our own! If you were at our January Fiesta, come on back for an all new story.

This event is completely FREE and open to the public--but registration in advance is strongly recommended!  Workshop space is limited, and the library has set up a registration system so you can reserve your spots at the Literacy Fiesta. Last year, our Literacy Fiestas were so popular that we were at room capacity and sadly had to turn people away at the door....we don't want that to happen to you! You can register your family for the Literacy Fiesta in advance by calling the library at (240) 777-0678 or by visiting in person. If you're not able to sign up in advance, please feel free to come on by... free tickets will be available (while they last) up to the program's start time.

The Family Literacy Fiesta event starts at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 10. Doors open at 2:15. If you're in the area, please come join us at Wheaton Interim Library, 2400 Arcola Avenue, Wheaton, Maryland for a celebration of books and stories!  Best for ages 3 and up.
