Well Tell Stories Celebrates National Library Week!

What could be a better combination than We Tell Stories and libraries? Since 1985, We Tell Stories has presented 700 shows at public libraries throughout the Southland. We present original adaptations of classic myths, legends, fairy tales, and literature from around the world that teach values such as compassion, humor, valor, and responsibility in a fun, interactive style that appeals to kids and grown-ups alike.

National Library Week is April 12th – April 18th. We Tell Stories is proud to be performing at 8 different libraries in Southern California. Please come and see us. All performances are free!
