Week 4: Campfire Stories

This is a fun, non-contest event where you can share your favorite campfire stories! Even though we can’t be together in person, we can share the experience of being around the campfire swapping stories virtually. We’ll be accepting recordings (video or audio) from interested participants to be posted on our Youtube page for everyone to enjoy long-distance.  There is no voting, and no prizes for this event except for the fun of sharing stories!

What kind of stories can I submit?

Stories should be all ages appropriate, but other than that, anything goes! Read your favorite spooky picture book, share your favorite Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, or tell the silly campfire story your parents used to tell while camping. Or read your own original story!

How Can I Submit My Story?

First, record your story. You can do this with a web camera, a phone voice recorder, or however you’d like. It can be a video, or it can be just audio.  Next, attach the file to an email addressed to idapubliclibrary@gmail.com. Finally, let us know in the body of the email:

  • Name of Reader:

  • Title of Story:

  • Is this an original story? If not, what is the original source?:

  • Do you give us permission to post this recording on our Youtube page? (yes or no):

  • Do you give us permission to put your name on your submission on our social media? (yes or no) (if no, we’ll mark your submission as Anonymous):
