Mo Willems Puppet Show  Jan 29 3:30pm (please register) We will be repeating the event from last year’s Summer Reading Club including black light, felt story and elephant and piggie classics. With the addition of I Really Like Slop the skit and puppet show.

We will conclude the week with a Stuffie Sleepover   Jan 29-30th . Drop off your teddy bear or stuffed animal and we will take good care of them at the library. They’ll have lots of fun with our puppets and books and tell you all about it when you come to get them in the morning.

Attending any of these events enters you in the draw to win a prize pack of unplugged activities for kids put together by the Optimist Club or books donated by Friends of the Library. DSCN1851.JPG
