East Central Regional Library welcomes the community to learn about Ojibwe culture and loon biology through storytelling by puppetry.

 The puppets will be used to tell the story of Loon’s Song. As the constellations move into their spring location, Grandfather Turtle eagerly awaits the return of his beloved granddaughter, Loon. He remembers the Ojibwe stories and the lessons they carry that he used to guide her as she matured.

 Loon’s Song, a program led by In the Heart of the Beast puppeteers Julie and Gustavo Boada, will be held at each Outreach location from June 17-20. All ages are welcome, and no registration is necessary. Here’s the schedule:
