Fish Tales Week for our Virtual/Online Programming!

June 28, 2021 - July 4, 2021

Fish Tales week

This week it’s all about H2 OH! We’ll dive deep and meet some fantastic finned friends with our wet and wild show, crafts, and special guests.

Check out our Virtual Summer Library Program! This is Fish Tales Week — We’ll jump into the “Once Upon a Time Machine” for a Wonderfully Watery show called The Ocean’s Got Talent with Storyologists, Page Turner and Kenny. We’ll also make a fun ocean scene craft and coffee filter sea creatures. Our author is the amazing Kate Messner with her books Over and Under the Pond and Over and Under the Rainforest. And our guest performer is Storyteller Extraordinaire, Yasu Ishida who will share some amazing tales and teach us how to make an origami whale. We hope you enjoy this week’s videos from Page Turner Adventures and the Canton Public Library. And remember, when You Read Every Day is an Adventure! This summer’s virtual fun from Page Turner Adventures is a gift from the Friends of the Canton Public Library.

SHOW DAY: The Ocean’s Got Talent
We’ve searched the seven seas for some of the ocean’s most talented creatures. Octopus will perform an amazing escape, Mantis Shrimp will prove he’s not just a pretty face, and Angler Fish has an act you’ll definitely want to catch. With all this talent, will Sea Slug be able to shine?
