The Perry Memorial Library will be alive with stories on April 23 when the library’s annual Storytelling Festival takes place. The Storytelling Festival is made possible through the generous support of the Vance County Arts Council, the North Carolina Arts Council, and the Friends of the Perry Memorial Library.
During the day fourth-grade students from Vance County schools will visit the library to be entertained and educated by a number of storytellers. The Family Storytelling Concert will start at
6 p.m. in the Farm Bureau Room and will feature Obakunle Akinlana, Robin Kitson, Fred Motley, and Sylvia Payne telling many tales and stories. The Family Storytelling Concert is free and open to the public.
