The PSO and McCracken County Public Library partner together to provide Musical Story Time, a program designed to promote music and literacy. Library storytellers and PSO musicians perform a reading of a selected book with music at local schools. Copies of the book are donated by the PSO, MCPL, and private donors to the classrooms and libraries of the school. The goals are to motivate reading, enhance comprehension skills, explore music and care of instruments, and encourage creativity.
