The Story Ship programs have thrilled audiences with educational workshops and performances for over 30 years. The shows combine interactive animation, music, storytelling, theater, comedy, games, puzzles and magic. This unique combination makes their performances and workshops truly original. The Story Ship artists perform regularly throughout the United States in theaters, schools, libraries, resorts, after school programs, and festival settings. They reach thousands of children and adults each year through hundreds of residencies, workshops and performances with audiences up to 8,000 kids. They have performed over 7,000 shows!


The Story Ship closes out the live performances for the 2022 “Oceans of Possibilities” Summer Reading Program at the Bienville Parish Library. Participants will need to turn in their completed reading logs so top readers from each library branch can be selected. All participants of the Summer Reading Program will receive a certificate of participation during the Awards program July 27th through July 29th. The ultimate super reader for the entire Bienville Parish Library system will also be awarded their certificate of achievement and prizes!


Preventing the “summer slide” continues to be the main objective of summer reading programs. Collecting the 2022 “Oceans of Possibilities” brag tags is a reading incentive to give your reader extra motivation to read and collect all ten tags. It will impress teachers with how many books/pages they read during their summer vacation!

The 2022 Summer Reading Program is designed to help:

  • Children be motivated to read.
  • Children develop positive attitudes about reading, books, and the library.
  • Children maintain their reading skills during summer vacation.
  • Children have access to experiences that further their sense of discovery.
  • Children have access to experiences through which they can learn to work cooperatively.

Most of all – HAVE FUN!

See You at the Library!
