On Thursday, June 21, 2012, teensReach volunteers (with the assistance of the staff) presented a fun puppet and variety show at the Almaden Branch Library. This program was part of the Summer Reading Celebration and was held in the large Community Room. The show's directors were Almaden Branch Librarian, Ed Koetitz and Pirjo Polari-Khan, adult volunteer (photo on the left). Opening the show were the colorful chicken and duck marionettes that danced and interacted with the children to their delight. A humoreous musical skit was presented called "Dog Rules" that detailed the rules that all dogs must follow. Featured at the end of the show, was the puppet play called "Mr. Eagle's Park," which was written by Irma Polari, Polari-Khan's mother, and tells the story of an eagle that takes over a park but soon learns that it's no fun to play by himself.
