Puppet Shows

The following puppet shows are available for one month loans from the Children's Book Exhibit Center.


PLEASE NOTE:  The puppets are somewhat fragile, not washable, and are mainly for adults putting on shows for children.  If older children are to perform with them, they should be closely supervised by the librarian.  Shows must be picked up at and returned to the CBEC (they cannot be mailed).  To check availability and to reserve a show, contact Aidan Sammis at aidan.sammis@state.vt.us or call (802) 828-2721.  All puppets are hand puppets, unless otherwise noted.
