Large puppets share folktlaes at Derry library


DERRY — Giant puppets invaded Derry Public Library last week, giving children enjoying the summer reading program a chance to hear stories and watch the handcrafted friends, some with strings, move, talk and share folktales.

Seacoast-based professional puppeteer Lindsay Bezich has traveled all around sharing her life-sized puppet friends — Ollie Ostrich, Pinky Pig and Luis Legstrong — with children at libraries, museums and other family-friendly venues.

The program was sponsored by the Friends of the Derry Public Libraries.

For a complete summer reading schedule, call the library at 432-6140.
