Tameside Story Makers


What is Story Makers?

Story Makers sessions are fun and interactive story sessions designed for children aged 0-4 and their families. Simon the Story Teller delivers free weekly drop in sessions at four libraries. The Story Maker sessions are funded from the Community Safety Project.
Families who attend will have the opportunity to work with award winning writer Caryl Hart and illustrator Andy Rowland to create a children’s picture book which will be printed and published.  Families who attend the sessions will receive a free copy of this book. There's a page on Caryl's website all about the project.

Story Makers People Like Me

After the huge success of the last two projects, Tameside libraries are pleased to announce that Tameside Story Makers is back for a third time.  This time round the theme is ‘People Like Me’ which focuses on everyone in our community.
