Just in time for cozy gatherings with hot cocoa, the Georgetown County Library is offering the Palmetto Storytelling Festival, a celebration of Gullah-inspired tales, amazing animal yarns, and even some spooky stories. A different Georgetown County storyteller will appear each day on Facebook > Georgetown County Library at 4 pm, from October 19 – 29. Natalie Daise, Gloria Barr Ford, Zenobia Harper, Elizabeth Huntsinger, and Jolla Powell each have side-splitting, hair-raising, and touching tales that will appeal to all ages.
There are also kid-friendly crafts featured on some of the broadcasts, and free supplies for the crafts are available at all four library branches. (Monday-Friday at Georgetown and Waccamaw, and Monday – Thursday at Andrews and Carvers Bay.)
“We’re so excited to be able to offer this to Georgetown County families,” said Children’s Head Librarian Shelia Sullivan. “These stories have been passed down right here in the Lowcountry for generations, and they give us an entertaining glimpse into our history and the things that make us unique.”
The Festival is sponsored in part by a grant from the Bunnelle Foundation. If you have any questions, please call Sullivan at (843) 545-3310.
