Young and old alike enjoy annual puppet show

 

By HEATHER WHALEY

Linda, Misty and WIlliam from the Upper Cumberland Regional Library (UCRL) hosted the annual puppet show on Thursday, July 2 during story hour.

This year’s theme was “Be Creative.” By using everyday materials and a little imagination, they taught the 31 participants and 17 adults how simply that can be done. From learning to paint with pudding and condiments to dancing along with rock ‘n roll freeze, the UCRL kept the youth occupied with many creative and educational activities. The puppet show entertained the youth with uncontrollable laughs and endless fun.

Story hour continues every Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 until July 30, when our end of summer reading party is planned. 

Teen night will start back this month on Friday, July 24.

A library board meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 22 at 1:00. The public is welcome to join. Books or movies will not be checked out during the time of the meeting.

Many new books have been added to the shelves. Some titles included are: “Undone” by Karin Slaughter, “French Women Don’t Get Fat” by Mireille Guliano, “Hidden in Plain View” by Jacqueline L. Tobin and Raymond G. Dobard, PhD, “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach, “Land of Promise” by Carol Cox, “The Reef” by Nora Roberts, “Pleading Guilty” by Scott Turow, and “Killer” by Sara Shepard.
