About this Event

Looking for some festive family fun this holiday season? Stop by the French Library to partake in activities inspired by traditional winter holiday celebrations in France! There will be story time, cooking workshops and arts & crafts for kids and teens. Come enjoy some artisanal French pastries and baked goods from our friends at Michette while meeting other families and our vibrant educational team. 

*Registration in one of the workshops is required to attend the holiday party.*
All workshops are conducted primarily in French. This is not a drop-off event. Accompanying adults must remain at the French Library while the child is attending workshop; 3- 5 year-olds must always be accompanied by an adult in their workshops.
