1:30 pm — Young readers can participate in the Summer Reading Club Medal Ceremony & Celebration, where we celebrate them completing their 50-day Reading Challenge. Come for medals, snacks, and a group photo, then stay for Pico’s Puppet Palace at 2 pm!

If you’re not able to collect your medal at the ceremony, not to worry, just come to the Library front desk and show us your reading tracker booklet to collect your medal!

2 pm — Pico’s Puppet Palace aims to have their shows presented to diverse audiences globally, and through puppetry, live music and storytelling connect audiences across generations. Each show is an episode of Pico’s adventures and introduces ecological and environmental issues, innovations and ideas.

‘Pico and the Golden Lagoon’ is an enchanting adventure story about courage, new friendships, and the wonders of nature. Pico is a world traveler who flies around in a yellow bi-plane. On her adventures, she is introduced to new eco ideas through the characters in the stories. Pico is in the middle of a mail run when all of a sudden her plane runs out of fuel and she is forced to make a crash landing on a nearby island. Here she meets David, a marooned naturalist, who shows her the charms of the island. Pico meets many wonderful characters including Lou a dragon who lives in a cave at the edge of the lagoon. Does Lou guard the solution to Pico’s empty fuel tank? How will the story unfold? Created from re-purposed and recycled materials, using puppetry, live music, and storytelling.

Join us for one or both of these events!
