For roughly 35 years, LoiS combined storytelling with librarianship. She now tells full-time, using her theatre training, puppetry, sign language, music, or dance to enrich her programs. Her extensive repertoire of stories lets her design a program meeting a wide variety of topics for all ages. Those stories can reach around the world or back in time. Her historical programs include reenactments of: Liberetta Lerich Green, who grew up on a southeastern MI Underground Railroad Station, was active in the Civil War homefront efforts, later was a farmer's wife, & is brought forward 100 years to the present time to tell about her life & times; a World War I bilingual phone operator ("Hello Girl") from Marine City; a reporter about Prohibition in Michigan; Skipping Through the Halls of '50s Memories; 1-Room School Teacher; the Hired Girl (which can include Victorian Christmas). Other topics covered include Abolition; War of 1812; Pioneer Life; 100 Years Ago; Memoir Writing.
