International Students to Read to Children
at McIntyre Library's Monthly Story Time

RELEASED: Oct. 16, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — Eleven University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire foreign exchange students enrolled in ESL 201, "Integrated Skills," will serve as guest readers at the next monthly story time session held in McIntyre Library.

The students will each read a book they've selected and assist education reference librarian Kati Tvaruzka in leading additional activities, songs and dances when children from UW-Eau Claire's Children's Center gather at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, in the Instructional Media Center on the lower level of McIntyre Library.

Students participating are Orgil Bataa, Unurzul Jigmeddagve and Mandakhnaran Khuder from Mongolia; Anh Phuong Cao from Vietnam; Sungil Cho from Korea; Gustavo Fuentes from Costa Rica; Aida Mujkanovic from Bosnia; Ryohei Nakamura from Japan; and Xiaoyan Wu, Hongzhen Xiao and Fang Qian Yu from China.

Tvaruzka, who leads the story time typically held the last Wednesday of every month, was previously a children's librarian at L.E. Phillips Memorial Library. She has been working with the ESL students, teaching them how to select appropriate books and giving them tips on reading to groups of preschoolers.

The story time session will be extended this month and last about 45 minutes. Children and grandchildren of faculty, staff, students and the general public also are invited. For more information, contact Tvaruzka at 715-836-4522 or tvaruzke@uwec.edu.
