Let your imagination run wild at the annual Telling Tales Festival! Co-hosted by the Hamilton Public Library, the festival is a celebration of literacy and learning, filled with stories, music, and art. Telling Tales promotes children’s stories and a love of reading while raising awareness and support for local literacy in Hamilton.

Telling Tales is an amazing opportunity to enjoy many of Canada’s leading children’s writers, illustrators, musicians, and storytellers.

Look for our HPL Bookmobile and join us for 4 puppet shows in the large meadow throughout the day.

Visit the Stories Change the World collaborative mural at the Dragonfly stage.
