Strings & things

Remember Cat’s Cradle? Anne Glover sure does. She makes strings come alive – with her special blend of stories and strings, you’ll never look at a shoelace the same way again. Professional storyteller Anne Glover, from Vancouver Island,  will tour the province during July and August, performing at 29 public libraries, from Digby to Windsor and all the way to Sydney. Her show is best for ages 4 and up. 

We are lucky to have Anne visit Nova Scotia. She’s been all over the world, but this is her first trip to our beautiful province and we can’t wait for you to meet her at six of our libraries. She will be in Hantsport on Monday, July 18 at 11 AM, in Kentville, Kingston, and Bridgetown on July 19, and in Middleton and Wolfville on July 20. Click on each town to find the exact time and location. 

Storytelling as an art form is both entertaining and acts as an educational tool. Historically, cultures have always told tales as a way of passing down beliefs, history and traditions. Storytelling stimulates children's imaginations and develops an appreciation of stories and reading. Anne's special style of storytelling will have your kids laughing and playing -- and you, too!

The tour is organized by the Council of Youth Services, which includes youth services staff from all nine public library regions in Nova Scotia, with funding provided by the Nova Scotia Provincial Library, the Department of Communities Culture and Heritage and the Nova Scotia Library Association. 

In Bridgetown we are partnering with the RCMP's Senior  Safety program to bring Anne Glover to children and their grown-ups, so kids, find a grandparent who wants to enjoy stories and bring them to the Legion Hall on Tuesday, July 19. In Kingston, the village is co-sponsoring the program, and in Middleton, the Friends of the Library are co-sponsoring the event on Wednesday July 20.  Thanks to all our sponsors and partners for helping to make this great program happen.

Find out more about Anne Glover on her website, and make your plans to see her when she is here in the Valley.
