As part of celebrations to mark World Storytelling Day, youngsters from St Bede’s RC Primary School, in Harold Street, Dunn Street Primary, in Staple Road, and Jarrow Cross CofE Primary, in Borough Road, were invited to Jarrow Library.
Library assistant Carol Hall, the storyteller for the event, said: “The children loved the World Storytelling Day. We organised a similar event last year and it was such a success we decided to do it again.”
Co-ordinated in the UK by The Society for Storytelling, World Storytelling Day is an annual event aiming to get as many different people across the globe to tell and listen to stories over 24 hours.
It is hoped that by sharing stories, links will be made between people from different cultures, communities and generations.
