It's an annual tradition that's back for another year.

Emily readsBob Brown listens to a story by Emily Hollingshead, Director of the Drumheller Public Library.

The library's popular Jingle Tales program runs the two weeks ahead of Christmas and features people from the community sharing their favourite Christmas tales.

"This is story-telling with different members of the community coming in from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. and sharing some of their Christmas stories," explained Lachie McFadden of the Drumheller Public Library. "You can come to the library, bring your lunch, have a coffee, and listen to people tell their stories."

People of all ages are welcome to attend.

"Last year when I did it, I had about six older ladies come and sit down and listen to some of the stories I read to my own kids."

McFadden pointed out that it's quite different reading stories to adults and seniors because they're much more engaged than small children.

"You're interactive with other people," he said. "I read a lot to kids, but I don't always read a lot to adults."

Drumheller Online/99.5 Drum FM's own Bob Brown will be participating again this year. His story will be read on Dec. 19 from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.
