They’re Back!

The puppets are back at the library!  We have also purchased some brand new puppets for our collection as well.  Please note that our puppets no long circulate outside of the library and must stay in the Picture Book Room at all times.  However, we hope you will come visit our new friends in the Picture Book Room!
