Storytelling Festival 2017

Storytelling Festival at the Library

Throughout the month of November, the Menlo Park Library will celebrate the art of storytelling—and story listening—by showcasing a series of professional tellers.  Every Monday night we will present a performance by a different storyteller, all new to our library.  Some of our returning favorites will be featured on other days of the week. Drop in for one event, or join us for the entire series!
