Children's Book Week
“Rise up Reading” was the theme for Children’s Book Week, November 12th-17th. The Santa Fe Public Libraries rose to the occasion by bringing in to all three libraries Paul Glickman, well loved puppeteer and magician. He performed at Southside Library Saturday the 17th, for children’s book week, which is sponsored through the Children’s Book Council http://www.cbcbooks.org/ The Southside Library featured a bulletin board book display with some books from Battle of the Books, and children could make a puppet or a crown, or both before the puppet show.
Some lucky children and audience members were part of the magic by going “onstage” with the characters and becoming part of the performance. Over fifty people attended and gave rave reviews. Everyone who attended also got a chance to be included in a drawing for a set of collectible Harry Potter stamps from Great Britain. Patrons say they really appreciate our library efforts to provide great activities to the public on the weekends. It’s a family place.
