Puppeteer Martha Dana Coming to Library on November 15th

Mark your calendars and bring the whole family. Martha Dana, puppeteer, along with her zany friends will be at the Lane Memorial Library on Tuesday, November 15th at 6:30 PM. What a way to celebrate Children's Book Week.

This extraordinary puppeteer will be bringing along her friends -- many are life-size -- to entertain all ages. Her energy is contagious along with her smile and storytelling. The puppets are made by Martha Dana and loved by all who have experienced one of her shows. The new skunk, introduced this summer, is sure to be a hit.

Experiencing a story through puppets is a great way to bring that story alive. It does not matter if the story is an old folk tale or a brand new picture book, seeing Martha and friends tell the story will engage all. Reluctant readers will be clamoring for the library's books and puppets to bring stories to life. Some may decide to check out a book to make their own puppets. What better way to celebrate the 86th year of Children's Book Week.

Please call the Lane Memorial Library's Children's Room at 926-4729 for more information and for a schedule of events during Children's Book Week.
