Ethiopian Literary and Cultural Awareness Association (ELCAA) to Host Third Bilingual Children’s Story Time at Silver Spring Library on July 12, 2014

Silver Spring, MD—The Ethiopian Literary and Cultural Awareness Association (ELCAA) will host a bilingual story time on Saturday July 12th 2014 at Silver Spring Library. The event, held in collaboration with Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL), will be the fourth in a series running through August of this year. ELCAA invites the community to bring their children and enjoy stories, songs and games in Amharic and English. The program will feature stories for children between the ages of 3 and 13 years.

The story time will be divided into two sessions: for children between the ages of 3 and 7 years old, the story time will begin at 1pm and for children between the ages of 8 and 13 years old, the story time will begin at 2pm. Silver Spring Library is located at 8901 Colesville Road, Silver Spring, MD 20910.

ELCAA held its first bilingual story time for children on April 5th, 2014, the second event on May 10th and the third on June 14, 2014.  Encouraged by the enthusiasm of the community members, ELCAA and MCPL are excited to offer monthly bilingual story time through August of 2014 at Silver Spring Library.

Founded in 2011, the Ethiopian Literary and Cultural Awareness Association (ELCAA) is an organization committed to strengthening, promoting and preserving Ethiopia’s cultural and literary life in the United States.  ELCAA was instrumental in the establishment of an Amharic Language Collection at Silver Spring Library in 2013.
