July 23, 2002 – Storyteller Elaine Jacobs and puppetmaker Dorothy Hassfeld are conducting puppet workshops for 5th and 6th grade students on Wednesday and Friday mornings over the next three weeks at the Enid M. Baa Library.
The "Ketch-an-Keep" puppet workshop sessions will be held from 10 to 11:30 a.m. July 24, 26, 29 and 31; and Aug. 2, 5 and 7. The students will present their own storytelling puppet show on Aug. 9.
"I've seen the puppets that Dorothy has produced, and they are amazing," Baa head librarian Diane Moody says. "Elaine loves telling stories, and she herself attends workshops on storytelling to enhance her own skills."
The workshops, which are being funded by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands, are free, but registration is required and only 15 students can be accommodated. To learn more and to register, call Moody at 774-0630 or stop by the Baa Library on Main Street.
