Join the NCRL Puppeteers as they present stories that include a ventriloquist whose puppets start telling their own story, a mad scientist who tries to take over the world, and the final story is about a bat and spider and their quest to become superheroes. All of the stories are weird and funny, and entertaining for kids from 3 to 93.

NORTH CENTRAL REGIONAL LIBRARY AWARDED $109,000.00 GRANT FROM PAUL G. ALLEN FAMILY FOUNDATION
The North Central Regional Library (NCRL) has been awarded a $109,000.00 grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation to expand its literacy programs for young children. Grant funds will allow NCRL to create a new position to serve low-income, at-risk children. The new librarian will bring books and story time programs to facilities outside of the library and will teach parents, childcare workers, and other caregivers the early literacy skills young children need. The award is part of the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation's Encouraging Children to Read initiative intended to motivate young children to become lifelong readers and develop their skills in tandem with the discovery of literature.
NCRL Assistant Director Angela Morris said, "We are excited by this amazing donation and humbled by the generosity of the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. Our outreach services to low-income children have been very effective in teaching early literacy skills and fostering a love of reading among young children. Thanks to the Foundation, we will double the impact of this great program."
