Youth Summer Reading Program 2020: Toe Jam Puppet Band

They’re baaaack! The Toe Jam Puppet Band returns to help us end the summer on a high note!* Their variety show features interactive songs, stories and puppets, and lots of silly voices. You’re sure to be dancing along…or at least tapping your toe. Will their virtual show be as fun and zany as the original? I think YES! This program will be available to view on the Library's Zoom account for two weeks following the event.

If you participate in this program, you can enter the code TOEJAM on your READSquared dashboard to earn a program badge! (For more information on READSquared, visit our Youth Summer Reading Program 2020 page.)

Thank you for watching Toe Jam Puppet Band! The 2-week time period for this program has expired. But you can still participate in our Summer Reading program's virtual escape rooms and quizzes! Check our Events & Recordings page to join in the fun.
*Please note: This Summer Reading Program event will be recorded. Any participants who wish to not be featured in the recorded session should mute their microphones, and/or disable their cameras.
