Two Summer Reading Programs were held at the Hartshorne Public Library yesterday. The presenter was Joanne McMillan. She is a puppeteer and artistic director. Her unique style of puppeteering is a combination of storytelling with every type and size of puppet and costumes and extensive audience participation. The livelely action and dialogue was complemented with large clorful projected photos, art, animations and video clips.

The first program was for the Teens and consisited of them making puppets and rehearsing a skit. The second program for the children consisited of the Teens putting on the skit with all the kids getting to particiate. It was a big success.
