Library of Palanthas Launches Children's Story Hour
by Trampas Whiteman, Staff Writer
PALANTHAS – The Order of Aesthetics announced Bakukal that it will be opening up a children's story hour. Each Kirinor at the noon bell, children will be able to come and hear stories about the tales of Ansalon's greatest heroes.
"This is all part of our literacy program," Marilon Adara said. "I'm pleased to be heading up this program. During the Dark Knight years, they discouraged literacy, but now that they've been driven from our homes, we can educate the public again. Learning begins as a child, and we want to open up young minds to the knowledge that Gilean has provided us."
When asked about potential problems with kender, Marilon said, "Kender will, of course, be a potential problem. However, the constabulary believes that this will 'contain' them. They've agreed to have an armed guard handy just in case."
Local educators are working with the Great Library in order to bring as many children to the event as possible. Parents are being contacted as well.
