Golden Toad Theatre presents Miss Moore Thought Otherwise, a new interactive musical for kids aged 3-8 (but all ages welcome). Come and meet Anne Carroll Moore, the trailblazing librarian born in 1871 who pioneered the creation of the children’s library. Find out about the time when children were banned from libraries and how Miss Moore imagined and built a space filled with music, stories and art, welcoming children into a special library room created just for them. Join Miss Moore and her puppet Nicholas Knickerbocker for a thrilling experience full of puppetry, songs and your own ideas. You’ll never look at your library in the same way again!
