Library Storytelling Programs

Tom Lee brings the art of storytelling to libraries across the country with his customized programs designed with library activities and library story time in mind.

Library audiences are typically made up of people of all ages and storytelling for adults can be just as fun as storytelling for children! Tom will carefully choose stories that will appeal to many listeners on different levels simultaneously. While most libraries request presentations for children and families, Tom also offers library storytelling programs geared towards adults.

As soon as Tom Lee begins telling a tale, you know you are in the hands of a master storyteller. His performances always receive raves from our family audiences.
— Kathy Jarombeck, Director of Youth Services, Perrot Library, Old Greenwich, CT

Tom particularly enjoys working with summer reading programs.  If you have a program based on a particular theme, Tom will develop a program of stories directly connected to that theme, including folktale stories or mythological stories.

Library programs are available throughout the year, and at reduced rates for block bookings from June through August. Check out our ‘Library events near me’ page to find upcoming short story telling library events in your area!

Here’s what local librarians had to say about Tom Lee’s programs:

Tom Lee brings each story to life. One minute the audience is in deep thrilling suspense and the next minute they’re falling over with laughter.”
— Clivel Charlton, Head of Children Services, Silas Bronson Library, Waterbury, CT
Tom’s skills as a storyteller held our multigenerational audience’s rapt attention with the combination of his knowledge and charisma as a performer. We recommend Tom highly; storytelling doesn’t get better than this!
