Puppet Shows

The following puppet shows are available for one month loans from the Children's Book Exhibit Center (CBEC). Please note, the puppets are somewhat fragile, not washable, and are mainly for adults putting on shows for children. If older children use the materials, they should be closely supervised by a librarian. Shows must be picked up and returned to the CBEC in person. They cannot be mailed. To reserve a show contact the Children's Book Exhibit Center. All puppets are hand puppets, unless otherwise noted.
