What do you get when you have an old rundown seaside bungalow, a poor fisherman, his wife, and some magical fish that can makes wishes come true? A recipe for some very big surprises, of course. Go Fish,The Fisherman and His Wife, is a funny tale with music that gently teaches a moral lesson.

Sure, it’s the season for snow, but can it really snow tortillas? The beloved Mexican folktale about luck, love—and lunch—comes to life with humor and music.

The Phyllis Noar Puppetry Festival is sponsored by the Phyllis Noar Memorial Fund of the Friends of The Library to celebrate the life of the late library advocate and past president of the Friends.
