Stuart has been performing in libraries since 1984. He is a favorite library performer around the Midwest. His own love of reading and writing books, as well as his enthusiasm for libraries are apparent during his performances. Besides singing and telling stories, he talks about growing up reading, and watching and teaching his own children to read. It is an authentic opportunity to encourage children and their parents to return again and again to the library, to use its many resources.
For 2017’s summer reading theme, “Building Readers – One Book at a Time” Stuart’s theme includes songs and stories, with one or two stories focusing on cooperation and community building. Songs include “Our House” and “Always Something for Everyone at the Library.”
