In the Midnight Library, a little librarian helps all the animals find the perfect book. The library is always peaceful and quiet until one night when some squirrels, a wolf, and a tortoise stir up a little trouble. Luckily, the little librarian knows just how to turn a little trouble into a lot of fun.

This workshop will focus on many aspects of theater including improv, movement, C.R.O.W. (Character Relationship Objective Where), story telling, literature, basic theater terms, team building, voice, imagination and most important, having fun!

This workshop will not be performance focused. There is no “final performance” at the end of the four week session, so if you can’t make every session don’t worry! Youth can earn DIY badges after the workshop.

The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) literacy program uses therapy animals to improve children's reading and communication skills. Join the R.E.A.D. team at the Waldo Branch the second Saturday each month between September 2014 and April 2015 (excluding December and January) as children read the pooches some prose. Children may sign up for a 10-minute slot each Saturday. Parents must sign a release form before children will be allowed to read with one of the dogs.
