HatrackTM Storytellers was formed in 1967 to present programs in a “Readers’ Theatre for Children” style.
Readers’ Theatre is called “Theatre of the Mind” because the audience has to provide the images for themselves. A group of trained interpreters (readers) consisting of both adults and children, take a story off the printed page and into the realms of sound and reaction.
The Hats are a visible symbol of the goals of Readers’ Theatre – stimulating imaginations, identifying multiple characters and representing the fun that comes from reading!
There are no space limitations – as long as the hat rack, readers, and audience are one.
We focus on children, joy of reading, growth in imagination, audience participation, and FUN!
Join Hatrack Storytellers Inc. for a special evening story time.
Open to all adults ages 18-100! Come bowl a few rounds or try your hand at tennis, baseball, boxing or golf at the library on our big screen with our Nintendo Wii and discover what everyone is talking about. Easy to learn, fun to play. Snacks provided.
Story Circles are a time for people of all ages to recall memories, reminisce and share history and life experiences orally. Share forgotten details with your peers or bring history to life for a younger generation. Come share your story and listen to others share theirs.
This month’s topic: Mamma’s Kitchen—What is your favorite home-cooked recipe? The most unusual food you ate growing up? Did your family celebrate its cultural heritage with certain foods or recipes? Do have any memorable canning stories?
Story Circles will be held once a month in the Community Room of the library and last for approximately 1 hour. Meetings will be informal and light refreshments will be served. People of all ages are invited to attend. Parents may bring children as long as the children are able to sit quietly and listen for an hour.
Groups will be limited to 15 participants at a time so please pre-register by calling the library reference desk (793-7114) to sign up.
