Join us on a journey of stories with special guest storyteller Gail Nelson on Tuesday, May 30 at the Crestview Public Library.
Our journey begins at 6:30 p.m. and ends around 7:15 p.m. Don’t let the Memorial Day holiday mess you up!
Registration is not required for this free event, which is sponsored by the Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperative.
Family Library Time is designed for children ages 4 and up with their adults. Adults not accompanied by children are also welcome. Please call 682-4432 with questions.
Being surrounded by a family of storytellers, Gail’s love for this oral tradition started at a young age. Her continual exposure instilled a passion for stories and inspired her to complete a bachelor’s degree in Drama and Elementary Education and a Master of Science in Library and Information Studies.
For the past thirty years, she has been able to share her storytelling in workshops, schools, libraries and on local television.
Gail presently works as an independent contractor in the school system as an artist educator.
Our reading journey continues with Library Classes for ages 0-14. Summer schedules are available now to pick up at the library (1445 Commerce Drive) or print from our website, www.cityofcrestview.org/178/Library
For ages 3-5, we’ll be focusing on building a better world with kindness in our June 5, 7, 12 and 14 classes with stories like “How Kind!” by Mary Murphy. We exit the womb as self-centered creatures. This story helps to introduce the idea of “paying it forward” with bold, colorful pictures and simple, repeating text.
Heather Nitzel is the Crestview Public Library's youth services librarian.
