The Friends of the Niobrara County Library will present a RIF (Reading is FUNdamental) program on Wednesday, April 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the county library. Markie Scholz returns with the lively puppet show, “Dragon Stories.” Attendees will be able to select books that they will be able to keep for their very own and snacks will also be provided. Suitable for all ages, this program is sure to entertain as this puppet show is an adventure for the whole family.

“Dragon Stories” is a storytelling fantasy about Zed The Dragon and his best friend, Estelle the Mouse. It is Zed’s 500th birthday and Estelle is bound and determined to make sure it is a memorable one! So she invites dragons from around the world to come to the party and share dragon stories from their culture. The dragons share stories of adventure and misadventure but they also threaten to have Estelle as a birthday treat – making for a lively and sometimes deadly celebration. “Dragon Stories” is full of antics and dry humor and is an interactive show that encourages the audience to celebrate Zed’s birthday.

“Dragon Stories” is the third in a series of adventures for Zed and Estelle. It is presented by Markie Scholz of “Dragons Are Too Seldom Puppets Theatre.” Scholz is a founding member of the Dragons and the Theatre has been bringing laughter and whimsy to audiences for many years; the “Dragons” have performed in over 40 states, six countries and on the Golden Gate Bridge in rush hour traffic.
