StoryFest is the NSU Alvin Sherman Library's premier early childhood literacy festival. The festival is inspired by "Read for the Fun of It", a program that encourages young readers to explore all that the library has to offer. The journey begins with a library card, so sign up for one at StoryFest!

Be our guest for magical tales told through music, theatre shows and storytelling. Enjoy face-painting, art activities and a chance to meet storybook characters. Children are encouraged to dress up!


While supplies last, every child leaves with a free book to take them on their next adventure!
