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, we have several storytimes throughout the year that are conducted in ASL. At these programs, we use 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.
Some of the storytimes are hosted by Rocky Mountain Deaf School (RMDS) and some by Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL). The RMDS storytimes are full immersion storytimes with a deaf storyteller only, whereas the JCPL storytimes also include an ASL interpreter to voice what is being signed.
We welcome all deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing patrons that are interested in having fun in ASL!
Join us for fun as we share stories, books and a craft. Children under 4 must be accompanied by an adult.
This program is possible due to the support of the Jefferson County Library Foundation.
