Storyteller Dave Del Rocco

Celebrate Summer Reading! Our summer theme is E Heluhelu Kākou; Moʻolelo, and Hawaii’s public libraries will be celebrating the rich and varied stories that shape our communities.


Storyteller Dave Del Rocco will share folktales from every corner of the globe, including Laos, Hawai‘i, Italy, Alaska, the Philippines, Africa, and more. These tales, appropriate for all ages but especially for children ages 5-12, are mostly funny and explain how different cultures view aspects of their world.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i. This is a production of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program with additional funding provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, and the University of Hawaii.

Advance requests 48 hours or more before the event are encouraged, but not required. Program schedule is subject to change.
