Online / Weekly Updates
During the past two years, because of COVID-19, the Library has been online with a partnership with The New York Public Library (NYPL) who has provided our members with digital access to their online collection of over 300,000 e-books and audio books! We hope this partnership will continue and that we will be able to open in person next year so children may borrow books.
During COVID we have continued reading to your children by posting a weekly story-time. Our website now has over 120 books read aloud by us, and occasionally sourced from the web, which will remain available to librarmembers.
All students at the Petit Collège of the École Alsacienne are welcome to join the library: whether your family is anglophone, multi-lingual, or simply interested in more exposure to English, we look forward to sharing The Little English Library with you!
The Little English Library is normally a parent-run after-school activity. Each year we aloud about 65 books and our members borrow over 1200 books!
In years past, we have met weekly for story-time & homemade snacks, after which the children borrow books, films and books-on-CD in English. We have over 2500 books and use the membership fees to grow our collection, and add to our new bilingual section.
Fees help us grow our collection of books, cover operating costs,
and go towards the new NYPL online access.
