Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

When I enter a library, when I enter the world of books, I feel the ghosts of the past on my shoulders urging me to speech.  I hear Patrick Henry cry to the Burgsses, ‘Is Life so dear, or Peace so sweet, to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?’  I hear Sojourner Truth tell me that the hand that rocks the cradle can also rock the boat, and William Lloyd Garrison say, ‘I am in earnest, I will not be silenced.’

Melikin Puppets perform Rumpelstilskin

Event Date: 
May 22 2014 - 6:00pm

On Thursday, May 22nd, at 6:00 p.m., the LaSalle Public Library will again host the delightful Melikin Puppets, performing “Rumpelstiltskin,” an exciting tale of a boastful father, a greedy king, a wicked and clever dwarf, and a desperate daughter caught in the middle, first transforming straw into gold, then searching for the name, “Rumpelstiltskin!”  Special effects, theatrical lighting and sound, make this colorful performance engaging and recommended for all ages. 

 

This program is free, but registration is required and tickets are limited. Families may register in person at the Library Children’s Desk, but will only be able to receive tickets for their own families.  Tickets are available now and will be until supplies run out.  For more information, please call the Library at 815-223-2341.  The LaSalle Public Library is located at 305 Marquette, LaSalle, IL.
