We will teleport an extraterrestrial puppet or two from the clowning void of space and beam up some silly space magic as we warp drive into FUN!
A huge galaxy of fun and laughter will appear in our portal when we rocket into the many space books of your library and make a landing on an asteroid of memories and fun for your library patrons.
