Today's KidsPost has a nice article about a puppet lending library run by Brooklyn's Puppeteers Cooperative.
Draped over dull gray boxes of electrical equipment is a Mother Earth puppet with a face the size of a manhole cover. A dragon made of blue garbage bags snakes down a circular staircase.
They peer from alcoves and hang from the ceiling; floor after floor of enormous puppets, including kid-size, grinning white carousel horses. The best part of it: The puppets are part of the New York Puppet Library and they can be checked out -- for two weeks. The puppets really belong to a group called the Puppeteers Cooperative. People use them for parties, parades and political rallies.
ABC News profiled the library earlier in the summer. The library's photo of the week, showing patrons using their puppets, is always good for a smile.
