Children and their families are invited to join the Avon, Eagle and Gypsum public libraries for a summer reading finale with ventriloquist Wayne Francis and his life-size puppet, Serina the mermaid. The show will feature a variety of puppets, original comedy music (accompanied by washboard and harmonica) and lots of audience participation.”This year’s summer reading theme of ‘Make a Splash’ has been a wonderful opportunity for children to explore the wonders of water throughout our weekly programs,” said Robyn Bryant, children’s librarian at the Eagle Public Library. “From bubbles to boats to conservation and wet weather, we learned a lot about water this summer.”The summer reading finale is a free event for children entering first through sixth grades.For more information, call the Avon Public Library at 970-949-6797, the Eagle Public Library at 970-328-8800 or the Gypsum Public Library at 970-524-5080.
