I thought the storytelling festival was in February…

imageIf you are a fan of storytelling generally and the Tcha Tee Man Wi Storytelling Festival in particular, you should know that the festival is set for the first weekend of March, that’s March 4-6, here in Corvallis.

I will refrain from spilling details to you.  Visit the festival’s website where all is revealed.

If listening to stories is your thing, the library has a bonanza of recorded books – books on cassette, on CD, on Playaway, and downloadable audiobooks  – to hold you until the festival comes around and real live story-tellers enthrall you.

You can also visit websites such as http://www.shortstoryradio.com/ or http://www.storylineonline.net (if you are a kid at heart) where a reader will read you a story for free.

Here are a few titles from our collection about stories and storytelling, pleasant diversions during our short, dark days. Happily heading toward spring we are!
