The Story Festival, set for November 7-9, is coordinated by the Bertha Bartlett Public Library (BBPL) Foundation with all proceeds to help fund the library expansion project. The expansion will include the current Pete Tekippe Photography building located at 509 Broad Street, which the library will begin using in 2020.
The Story Festival, now in its 13th year, is taking on a new direction, encompassing local talent in a much greater way, while still bringing the educational expertise of professional storyteller Will Stuck from St. Joseph, Missouri to Story City. Stuck will be featured throughout the festival, offering multiple workshops and performances. This is an opportunity for our community to explore the various forms of storytelling, with something for everyone to enjoy. Many events are offered with a freewill donation collected to cover costs. This is made possible with the support of the Roland-Story School District Foundation and various Story City area sponsors.
