Winter Stories

Storytellers and musicians - students and faculty of the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will entertain children of all ages at the Friends of the Library’s 21st annual Winter Stories program on Thursday, Dec. 5th in the Pleasants Family Assembly room of the Wilson Library on the UNC at Chapel Hill campus.

This year’s program, “Cold but Cuddly,” will feature storytelling along with live instrumental music and sing-alongs.

Dr. Brian Sturm, SILS associate professor, and SILS students and members of the StorySquad, Hannah Easley, Cameron Kania, and Dawna Neil will enchant with folk tales and literary tales from around the world.

UNC students Jessie Aldridge, Mandi Gonzalez, Meredith Hale, Amy Kemp, Eduardo Prieto and Emily Vardell will provide musical entertainment.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a new or gently used children’s book to contribute to a book drive for the Book Fairy, an organization that donates children’s books to the Pediatric Oncology Clinic at UNC Hospitals. There is also a book box located in the SILS lobby for those who would like to contribute books.

We hope to see you at this annual holiday event that brings out the child in all of us!
