Wednesday, February 21, 10:30 a.m. - "The Trolls and the Tree” Puppet Show & Craft
The trolls want to take good care of the fairies' garden, but they also want space for their toaster, TV and chairs. Can the trolls learn to go green?
After this 30-minute show, audience members are invited to make their own simple paper/craft stick puppet and place them in a fairy garden or troll garden, making decisions about how to take care of the natural world. Join local favorite Margaret Moody for this engaging puppet show and activity. No registration is required.
Thursday, February 22, 10:30 a.m. – Antelope Dance Music Program
Kids, ages birth to 6 years old, and their families are invited to join Liz Buchanan of Antelope Dance for a music program full of both familiar songs you probably know and original songs, many written with the help from kids.

No registration is required.
All activities are free of charge. For more information, call the Library at 508-946-2470, or email Lori Salotto at email@example.com.
