Professional Storyteller Performing at 29 Public Libraries Across Nova Scotia This Summer

Anne Glover from Story string productions

Professional storyteller Anne Glover will be touring across the province during the month of July, performing at 29 public libraries, from Digby to Liverpool and all the way to Sydney.

“We are really lucky to have Anne visiting us, she is from Vancouver Island and has “Wowed!” audiences across Canada and around the world, but it’s her first time in Nova Scotia. She has just been awarded the 2016 Storykeeper Award by the Storytellers of Canada for her outstanding work. I think the kids will love her!” said Angela Reynolds, Community Engagement Coordinator with the Annapolis Valley Regional Library.

The Storyteller tour is part of the public libraries summer reading campaign, to engage kids with library programs and activities all summer long. The shows are for ages 4 and up.

“I am really excited to be visiting Nova Scotia, meeting people and taking in some of the province’s natural beauty. Nova Scotia has a strong storytelling tradition, I am looking forward to taking in some of its’ rich history and culture!” said storyteller Anne.

Storytelling stimulates children’s imaginations, and develops an appreciation of stories and reading. Storytelling as an art form is both entertaining and acts an educational tool, historically cultures have always told tales as a way of passing down beliefs, history and traditions.

Anne will also be offering two professional development workshops for library youth services staff.

The tour is organized by the Council of Youth Services, which includes youth services staff from all nine public library regions in Nova Scotia, with funding provided by the Nova Scotia Provincial Library, the Department of Communities Culture & Heritage, and the Nova Scotia Library Association.

Anne just completed a 4-week tour of Chile and Argentina, read about her travels on her blog -
