A Puppet Corner in Every Library.
Written to inspire and encourage librarians to try new ideas with puppets, this generously illustrated book covers financing; some actual uses, e.g., library mascot, a get-acquainted friend, an informal puppet corner; library instruction through puppet use; puppets as part of media-loan kits; and puppets as storytelling aids. Ideas on play production include discussions of the script, action, voice, and rehearsals, as well as sound effects, special effects, and props. Professional puppeteers are also discussed as being an integral part of any library puppet program. Techniques and patterns for making puppets are included, along with several articles describing library programs, and a listing of resources which includes organizations, suppliers, publishers, and additional publications.
