StoryUP is an interactive storytelling program for all kids, from preschoolers to teens. Children get to write their own stories, pick the settings and characters, and help act out some of the stories with the help of a professional improv group. Meanwhile, they are also getting a literacy lesson without even realizing it.
A series of StoryUP programs will be hosted throughout the city at our neighborhood lLibraries on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m.. The series kicks off in January and will continue until June. It is a free program for children of all ages.
