Children of all ages watch the puppet show held at the South Brunswick Public Library in Monmouth Junction on June 9. The puppet show was performed by the South Brunswick Puppeteer group.

The East Brunswick Library will offer a shadow puppet making workshop at 2 p.m. on Feb. 24 at the library, Civic Center Drive, East Brunswick.

The program is for children, ages 5 and up only.

The Tanglewood Marionettes will then perform “Sleeping Beauty” at 2 p.m. on March 3. They recreate the classic fairy tale with handcrafted marionettes. Before the performance, the puppeteers will demonstrate how marionettes work. “Sleeping Beauty” is for children ages 2 and up.

The 20th annual Phyllis Noar Puppetry Festival is sponsored by the Phyllis Noar Memorial Fund of the Friends of the East Brunswick Library to celebrate the life of the late library advocate and past president of the Friends.

Free tickets for both programs are available at the Youth Services Desk.
