Puppet Kits

Who doesn't love a puppet show? Puppets help us tell stories in fun, creative ways. Did you know that you can check out a book that comes with a puppet? We have puppet kits at the library that include a picture book with one or more puppets representing a main character from the story. Using the puppets is a great way to help make the story come alive for you! Enjoy it by yourself, or put on a puppet show for family or friends!

Where are the Puppets?

Many of the puppets in the children's department have gone on vacation for a few days so they can be cleaned and sanitized. They will be back soon, and look forward to playing with their many fans.

Where Did the Puppets Go?

The puppets in the Children's Department will be unavailable for checkout beginning Wednesday, August 31, 2011. The puppets will be getting some much needed TLC before school starts, to keep them in the best shape possible for everyone to enjoy. The puppets will be available again after the Labor Day holiday. Thank you for your understanding!

Puppet Kits

Did you know we have puppets at the library? Did you know that we have created Puppet Kits for you to enjoy? The puppet kits contain a picture book and puppet to help bring the story to life. You can have an adventure with Curious George, get lost with Max and the Wild Things, or fight off the Big Bad Wolf with the 3 Little Pigs. Your adventures begin along the purple wall near the DVD's in the Children's Department.

40 Years of Sunny Days!

Today is the 40th birthday of Sesame Street! As the longest-running children's television show, Sesame Street has been around as many of us have grown up. Celebrate this special day and sing a verse of "Rubber Ducky," play some Sesame Street games, or stop in at the library where we have all kinds of Sesame Street materials.

Happy birthday, Sesame Street!

Celebrate Jim Henson's Birthday this Week

New Puppet Kits Are Here!

Our new puppet kits have arrived and are currently being processed. Put yourself on hold for my personal favorite: Mama Cat Has Three Kittens by Denise Fleming. The adorable kitty puppets do a great job of bringing this story to life for your children.

Puppets

The puppets have been temporarily removed from circulation and will be returned as soon as possible.  We thank you for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.

New Puppet Arrivals!

Our new shipment of Folkmanis puppets has arrived and these cute friends are ready to go home and play with you! Check out some of my personal favorites: Frog in a Spaceship or Frog Prince - they're awesome!

Puppet Bath Time

Here at CPL, we strive to ensure that our circulating puppets get cleaned frequently. If you notice any puppets in desperate need of a "bath," please let a staff member know so we can take care of them right away. We want our puppet area to continue serving as a fun play space and we thank you for your help in keeping our fuzzy friends fresh and clean!

New Puppet Kits Have Arrived!

A couple new puppet kits, such as Fidgety Fish by Ruth Galloway, have arrived to the children's puppet collection! Bring one home today and share storytime fun with your family.

Puppet Fun!

Keep a look-out for the new finger puppets that will soon be arriving to the Children's puppet collection. And while you're waiting for them to arrive, why not try making some puppets of your very own? Disney has lots of great suggestions to check out!

Puppet Kit Collection

You may have noticed that we're expanding the Children's puppet collection to include puppet kits of popular stories (like Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak). If you have a favorite children's story you'd like to see included in this collection, please let us know - we always appreciate your input!
