Story Time at Blanche Ely House Museum (BEHM) was designed with legacy of pioneering educators, Blanche and Joseph Ely, in mind. The Elys lifelong dedication to providing and extending high quality academic and cultural experiences to African-American students in Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Dania Beach is at the center of this program. Story Time at BEHM was developed to create an opportunity for even the youngest visitor to build a sense of community, participate in age appropriate learning and creative artmaking-- we read stories, create thematic projects and enjoy a healthy snack together. Story Time at the Blanche Ely House Museum aims to build a love of reading and storytelling while celebrating cultural heritage and a sense of community.
Although we can't be together for Story Time at the Blanche Ely House Museum, we are bringing these virtual programs to you through the magic of the internet!
