The Cape Breton Regional Library Board and staff are pleased to support and take part in the Singing Storyteller Symposium. The Library believes it is necessary to recognize and promote Cape Breton’s rich storytelling heritage. To foster storytelling in our region, the Library developed a Storyteller-in-Residence program in 2011, the first in Atlantic Canada. The CBRL Storyteller-in-Residence has taken part in many festivals and events and the Library has developed storytelling workshops and events around Cape Breton Island.
The Library supports and encourages literacy and life-long learning through the provision and delivery of quality programs, books and other materials which meet the needs of community members. Through twelve library branches and two bookmobiles, the Cape Breton Regional Library has helped to support lifelong learning in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality and Victoria County since 1950.
