The Decatur Public Library kicked off its new bilingual story time with a party Saturday. Librarian Cecilia Barham said children and parents enjoyed stories, songs and games in Spanish and English. The library received an Amo Leer/I Love to Read grant to expand the Spanish language children’s collection and bilingual programming. Money received from the grant covered the expense of the new program and allowed the library to purchase 770 bilingual and Spanish children’s books.
The regular story time will be at 10:30 a.m. the first Saturday of every month, beginning in February.
