• Nappy's Puppets Presents: Shadows Around the World
    Wednesday 22 February at 11.00 in the Walpole Library Community Room
    In this fun and interactive show, you’ll meet everyone from elegant Chinese Emperors to the topsy-turvy Turkish trickster Karagoz, all with the hilarious Jim Napolitano as your guide! Travel the world with shadows, stories and songs! Shadows Around the World explores the history of shadow puppetry and its development. The program focuses on world cultures and history and the development of Shadow Theater as an art form.

    This program is free and open to the public. This program is funded through the Walpole CFCE Program, through the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care’s Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Grant.

  • Tea with Emily Dickinson

    Saturday, March 4 at 11:00 am

    Poet Emily Dickinson continues to fascinate and baffle her readers as they try to understand how this shy and quiet woman could be so passionate and poetically articulate about the world around her.  Join us as we visit with Emily one afternoon in 1883.  You may never think of Miss Emily in quite the same way.
    "Tea with Emily Dickinson" is a one-woman show featuring Beth Goldman and is based on William Luce's play "The Belle of Amherst" published by Samuel French, Inc.
