Puppet Kits

In response to a Nancy Renfro Puppetry Workshop held in early 1981, the Mississippi Library Commission created puppet kits as a new service for public libraries. Each kit included puppets and scripts for each puppet. The puppet characters included: Wooser Witch (our favorite witch name ever), Henny Penny, Goldilocks, the Three Piggies and Little Red (Riding Hood). You can learn more about the Puppet Kits in volume 14 issue 5 of the 1981 Packet.

Puppet fans, rejoice! By the end of summer 2016, we'll be rolling out brand new puppet kits for the Mississippi Library Commission's collection. The coming puppet kits will include nursery rhyme and fairy tale characters, a wide variety of animals, mythical beings, and family kits featuring African-American, Caucasian, and Latino people puppets. Finger puppets will be available for some categories. The puppets will be available for checkout as a set with related books for story times.
