First recorded in 1967 by Louis Armstrong, and with sales of over one million copies, "What a Wonderful World" has become a poignant message of hope for people everywhere.  This Hylton at Home Story Corner is read by Darden Purcell, Director of Jazz Studies, Reva and Sid Dewberry Family School of Music, George Mason University.

The Hylton Performing Arts Center and the Prince William Public Library System have joined forces to continue Hylton at Home Story Corner, a virtual performing arts story time this spring. The goal of this virtual story time is to increase awareness of different performing art forms and artists through books. Each story time will be pre-recorded and premiere on both the Hylton Center and Library’s social media channels at 10:15 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month. The library will prepare reader advisories for each book that list similar books children and families may want to explore.
