It’s @ the Library

The second of three Reading is Fundamental (RIF) programs will be held on Wednesday, March 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the library. Children will be entertained with the puppet show “In the Center of Things” presented by professional puppeteer, Markie Scholz. Hedgy Hedgehog is forced into the Big Woods by the Niggle Naggles who constantly tease and pick on him. He must find his way home but not before he comes face to face with Growl the Troll who is trying to be a friend, a bullying caterpillar, a sly fox who wants Hedgy to do his work for him, and a nasty wind with an awful attitude. Throughout Hedgy’s adventure his friends, Sally A. Wolf and Growl the Troll try to help Hedgy learn how to handle bullies and get out of the Big Woods and back home safely. Everyone in attendance will be able to select their very own book to keep and if children missed the first RIF they will be able to select two books. Plan now to attend for a fun hour of entertainment.
