Do you have a child who is deaf or hard-of-hearing? How about a child you would like to experience American Sign Language (ASL)? If so, bring them to the storytime conducted in ASL. This program uses the language of the deaf to tell stories and share fun. All the storytellers are deaf and use ASL as their primary language. These storytimes immerse participants into the wonderful worlds of sign language, reading, storytelling and deaf culture.
