The Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) will present renowned local storytellers, an African music and dance ensemble, and other special performers in a series of Fall 2011 Children’s Programs.

Storyteller Ben Moffat will be at the Molokai Public Library tomorrow, Wednesday, at 3 p.m. This program is recommended for ages 5 and older. All children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

Moffat has performed in Hawaii’s public libraries, presenting various shows, including his solo storytelling performances using masks, stilts, and puppets. Moffat will perform “Stories on Stilts and Other Tall Tales” at five selected libraries statewide including Molokai Public Library (553-1765).

The storytelling performances are made possible by a host of generous sponsors: The Friends of the Library of Hawaii, Ko Olina Hawaii, Marriott Resorts Hawaii, HMS Host, Meadow Gold Dairies, Hansen Distribution Group, ING Foundation, Armstrong Produce, Roberts Hawaii Tours, DFS Hawaii, and Toshiba Business Solutions. Additional funding is provided by the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program, and supported in part by the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts through appropriations from the Hawaii State Legislature and from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Visit the HSPLS website: for a complete listing of these and other free programs presented in Hawaii’s public libraries which are subject to change. Call the hosting library as soon as possible if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed.
