Story characters this week

You will see Curious George, Splat the Cat, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Elephant & Piggie, and Watson the Bear wandering the library this week. One or more of these characters will be in the library (mostly the Kids Library) at the following times:

May 30th              9:30-11                2-3         6-7

May 31st              9:30-11                2-3         6-7

June 1st                10-11                    1-2         4-5         6-7

June 2nd                10-11

We don’t know which character will be out when because the costumes depend on the volunteers’ height. The characters won’t talk but will have a handler (a fellow volunteer or a staff member) with them to do the talking and help them move around. Please help the characters visit with kids and parents if they look like they need help. Also encourage kids to talk to the characters. Volunteers will only be in costumes for 15-20 minutes at a time. The costumes are very hot so they can’t stay in them for very long.

    Did the Library rent the costumes? If so, what business provided them, or how did the Library acquire them? Thanks! Kim

    Why were there no auditions for the roles? I would’ve made a great Clifford.

      We’re using volunteers, but I’m sure Kari would be happy to have you dress up as Clifford. Just let her know when you are available (oh, and check with your boss). 🙂
