From Boston to San José...

We have been very pleased to welcome volunteers from Northeastern University who are working with our Language Corners in Curridabat (the Municipal Library, and the library of 15 de Agosto School in Tirrases). They will continue leading Story Hour and supplementary activities at these sites during October and November. At left, the volunteers read with students at the Municipal Library on Children's Day (the book: "How do Dinosaurs Go to School?", by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague). For more information, stay tuned to this site! Thanks so much to Bharat, Jonathan, Mitchell, Anna, Justine and Peter, along with their professor Noel Habashy and the International Center for Development Studies, for making these sessions possible.

We are pleased to launch this blog so that librarians and volunteers in the Language Corner project, an initiative of the Costa Rica Multilingüe Foundation that donates literature in English and other foreign languages to municipal and school libraries, can post information about activities, strategies, favorite books, and upcoming events at their sites. At right, students at our first Language Corner (15 of August School, Tirrases de Curridabat) read "Flap Your Wings." / Nos complace lanzar este blog para que bibliotecarios y voluntarios de Esquina de los Idiomas, iniciativa de la Fundación Costa Rica Multilingüe que dona literatura en inglés y otros idiomas extranjeros a bibliotecas municipales y escolares, puedan compartir información sobre sus actividades, estratégias, libros preferidos, y los próximos eventos en sus sedes. A la izquierda, estudiantes de la primera Esquina (Escuela 15 de Agosto, Tirrases de Curridabat) leen el libro en inglés "Flap Your Wings" ("Bate Tus Alas").
