Story-telling volunteers sought for Spellbinders
Calling all grandparents, retirees, grown-up kids, former teachers or librarians: Do you want to learn to tell engaging, fun stories to children in the oral story-telling tradition? Spellbinders is dedicated to restoring the art of oral story-telling to connect elders to youths, weaving together the wisdom of diverse cultures throughout time.
To become a Spellbinder in the Steamboat Springs chapter, interested volunteers must attend this three-day Spellbinders workshop series, led by certified story-teller Sherry Holland. You will learn and then tell two stories: a three- to five-minute fable during the second session and a five- to 10-minute folktale for the last session.
The workshop is limited to 10 participants and will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 3 and 4 as well as 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 7. The cost is $30. The deadline to register for the class is Aug. 29. To sign up, contact Youth Services Librarian Sarah Kostin at email@example.com or call 970-879-0240, ext. 314.
Once registered, you can pick up your training packets at the library’s Kids’ Desk so you can read ahead. This Spellbinders training workshop is only offered once per year.
Trained Spellbinder volunteers will have the opportunity to adopt a local elementary classroom to visit once per month (for a minimum of six visits) throughout the course of the school year.
