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, arts and crafts, and tasty treats. Come meet other families and our vibrant educational team while enjoying some light refreshments and drinks and listening to holiday music in French. Plus, local francophone visual artist, A'Key, will be hosting special painting workshops for kids and teens!

*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.
