The art of storytelling is alive and well, as demonstrated by professional storyteller Claire Ramsey on Wednesday, July 25, at the Selma and Kenly public libraries.

Ramsey is a full-time storyteller and operates her own business, Stories With Claire.

While the libraries have shared the same programs before, this is the first year the Selma and Kenly libraries have operated on the same identical schedules, a cost-cutting move.

“This is the first time Claire has been here and it was wonderful how she involved the children,” said Selma Librarian Phyllis Brown.

“Claire was a great addition to our program this summer,” said Kenly librarian Betty Pope. “She was very engaging.”

During her hour-long program, Ramsey told several humorous stories with a moral and kept the children involved by having them help with her stories. The children enjoyed making sounds and using gestures during her stories, at both performances.
