Puppets coming to libraries

Children will “travel down the trail” with Joe Pipik as he and his Backpack Puppets meet a cast of animal characters at the library on July 9.
Get the details for this and other special events coming to the library this summer.

Join Paddy Hobart and his dog Tuxedo, cat Silky and the mischievous monkey Jogi during a whimsical introduction to puppetry.

The program begins with a sing-along and features a short demonstration of a simple hand puppet and a more sophisticated marionette. A puppet show about a mischievous monkey who ruins a rainbow and needs the help of the children to fix it will entertain the whole family.

After the show, you might want to check out how you can make your own puppet show.

Registration is not required. Virginia Trails special events are sponsored by The Friends of the Fauquier Library. The Virginia Trails summer reading program also features weekly reading quests, family movies and games for children in preschool to fifth grade, and story times for the little ones.
