Story Slam: ‘Lost and Found’

Beaverton City Library will host a “Lost and Found” themed Story Slam on Thursday, Jan. 11 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The friendly, open-mic storytelling competition will occur at the main library located at 12375 SW 5th St.

Potential storytellers will put their names in a hat; names will be picked from the hat and those chosen will take to the stage to tell their true, personal, 5- to 8-minute story. Members of the community ages 13 and older are invited to come put their name in the hat to tell a story, which must be told from memory.

The winner of the competition will receive a $10 Book Corner gift certificate. Potential storytellers should arrive 15 minutes prior to the event start to speak with the event host about their planned story.

Story Slam is open to all who simply want to enjoy the show. This program is free and open to the public. For more information, visit or call 503-644-2197.
