Bringing Stories Alive at the Maroochy Libraries Workshops Day

(Jenny, Toni, Amanda and other Maroochy Library staff retelling a story)

What a pleasure it was to run a storytelling workshop for the Maroochy Library staff at the Alexandra Park Conference Centre on Sunday. It would have been hard to find a more alive, active participating group of workshop attendees.

We told stories, explored good storytime strategies,
played games and enjoyed a couple of digital stories from library sponsored community workshops.

A well appointed conference room in a shady, bushland setting and the excellent organisation of the day all helped make it a good learning experience for one and all. Well done Maroochy Libraries and a special thanks to Nadia Bowtell.
