Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

Storytelling – an ancient, community-building, revered, and always-relevant “technology” – is a powerful connector. Stories can bring people together. Stories resonate with everyone and we can use them to better understand our communities and ourselves. This session introduces unique ways to extend and enhance the power of stories in your institution. We will explore how to provide inclusive and welcoming programs built around storytelling for everyone, and how to engage with the community around the concept of “Libraries Change Lives.”  This session will cover the many facets of storytelling: using our voices to tell our personal stories, work stories, and library stories, and how to use stories to promote and make our libraries accessible. Story-based experiences of all kinds can increase listeners’ understanding of a variety of groups, demonstrate the value of everyone’s experience, and remind listeners of their shared humanity. We will demonstrate how Libraries have the power to change lives.
