Lynden-ClaudiaOrjuela-HOMEStorytime

FREE
This is a virtual event.

Join us for a virtual, bilingual HOME Story Time from the comfort of your home. HOME Story Time features children’s books written or illustrated by authors, illustrators, and artists who have faced forced displacement as refugees, asylum seekers, or immigrants. Designed for children aged 4-8, we believe that reading picture books is a way to share and discuss big ideas with young children. We end each session with an art activity from Lynden art educator Claudia Orjuela. Follow-up activities will be available for download.

Scheduled to screen every second Wednesday of the month, HOME Story Time is a collaboration with the Milwaukee Public Library, the Islamic Resource Center, Hanan Refugee Relief Group, and Alliance Française de Milwaukee. Videos will remain on view once they are posted.

Join poet and birder Chuck Stebelton the second Sunday of each month for a small-group, socially distanced bird walk on the grounds.

Please dress for the weather and plan to walk in varied terrain. Bring your binoculars if you have them; no previous birding experience required.
