Since 1977, the University of Lethbridge Applied Studies Program and the Lethbridge Public Library have worked together to offer students the opportunity to participate in the Storytelling Program. Storytelling takes place in Lethbridge and area elementary schools (K–6), daycares and local community organizations.
The Library hopes that through exposure to storytelling, children will be encouraged to read and to use the Library.
