Charlie’s Heroes: An Original Puppet Show

CHARLIE’S HEROES, an original puppet show given by the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center, will be performing at the library (downstairs in the children’s department) this TUESDAY, August 4th, at 1:00pm.

This may be the perfect opportunity to answer definitively:

If we prick the puppets, will they bleed?
If we tickle them, will they laugh?
If we poison them, will they die?
If we wrong them, will they seek revenge?
— very loose, personal translation from Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice”
