Mr. Mac has become a Birmingham favorite among Moms when considering a local storytime. He’s even advertised as a “Storyteller Extraordinaire” at the North Shelby Library.
He sings, he plays the banjo and harmonica, and he brings a bag of tricks, okay, maybe not so much tricks but he does have a bag of puppets. If you are looking for a storytime that is interactive and truly suitable for all ages, this is definitely one you want to put on your list to visit. The older ones will jump right in and participate, singing, and dancing, even answering his questions. The younger ones are mesmerized by all of the goings on… There is a little something for everyone in this storytime.
The North Shelby Library usually has snacks out and you can count on Mr. Mac having a themed storytime coordinating with some holidays. In addition to The North Shelby Library, you can catch Mr. Mac at Emmet O Neal Library in Mountain Brook, and at Albert Scott Library in Alabaster.
Here is how to find Mr. Mac throughout the week:
North Shelby Library – Every Wednesday Morning, 10:45am
Albert Scott Library, Alabaster – Every Wednesday Afternoon, Tunes and Tales, 3:30pm
Emmett O’Neal Library, Mountain Brook – Every Saturday Morning, Family Storytime, 10:30am
