Last parent café in 2022 in the Korbach and Frankenberg libraries

As part of the action program "Catching up with Corona", parent cafés with reading aloud will be held for the last time this year on December 12 and 13, 2022 in the Korbach and Frankenberg public libraries. The offer from the Youth Service of the Waldeck-Frankenberg district with the subject area of early help is aimed at parents with young children, with a focus from birth to 3 years of age; siblings are also welcome. "Catching up after Corona" is a support program of the Federal Foundation for Early Help, funded by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.

The current Corona rules are observed at the parent cafés in cooperation with the two public libraries. A child-friendly environment and support from library staff and a pedagogical specialist provide the best conditions for all visitors to the parents' café to spend a few pleasant hours in the public libraries. Parents can look forward to interesting and stimulating readings, and can go on a journey of discovery into the world of books together with their child. In addition, parents and children can borrow so-called explorer backpacks, which are filled with age-appropriate picture books, read-aloud books, a hand puppet, a radio play and a Tonie figure, for example.

At the event on Monday, December 12, 4 p.m. in Korbach and on Tuesday, December 13, 9 a.m. in Frankenberg, the clown Ugolino will be a guest in the public libraries with his pre-Christmas children's theater "Emma's Christmas Star". He is accompanied by his guitar and by an Advent calendar in which gnomes and goblins live, Christmas sock puppet Knurps with mischief in his head and hand puppet Emma are also present. Together they rescue a crashed Christmas star and sing and dance with the children in the public libraries.
