    Legend tells us that in olden days Britain had a great and honorable king named Arthur.  Arthur’s advisor was Merlin, a wizard, an enchanter, a diviner, a magician, and a sorcerer.  Without Merlin, Arthur might never have gained the high kingship and most likely would not be remembered today.  Join storyteller Pamela Bomboy as she shares stories of Merlin, Arthur, enchantments, battles, and a certain sword in the stone. This storytime also includes a craft activity. For everyone, but especially for ages 6-12.
