Storytellers and musicians will entertain children of all ages at Friends of the Library‘s 17th annual Winter Stories program Dec. 10 in UNC’s Wilson Library.

The fun will begin with refreshments in the lobby at 5 p.m. and continue with music and tales from around the world in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room at 5:45 p.m.

Storytellers will be Brian Sturm, associate professor at the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS), and SILS students Katherine Lukmire, Jane McMahon, and Vickie Shore. They will recount tales representing every season from Germany, West Africa, England, and the Czech Republic.

Instrumental music will be provided by guitarist and SILS library assistant Kate Barnhart; flutist and Davis Library music cataloger Laurie Neuerburg; violinist Steven Wiggins; and guitarist and SILS student Carrie Stubblefield. There will also be sing-alongs.

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. The need is especially great for Spanish-language books at the preschool level and picture books or easy readers in English.
