The puppet show, “Little Green O’Glenn and the Lazy Leprechaun” will be performed for the Reading is Fun program on Wednesday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. The Friends of the Library sponsor this literacy-based program the 2nd Wednesday in February, March and April each year with the help from the local Future Business Leaders of American (FBLA). Each program features a program, a coordinating craft and snacks. The highlight of the evening is that each child is able to select their very own book to keep. Each child is able to receive three books, so if there are missed programs they are able to make up missed books.
