Library children perform "Mitten" folktale
Children participating in Cloquet Community Education's afterschool program came to the Library to hear "The Mitten." The children also picked parts from the story and acted out a play. Three children became narrators, while others chose to be the animals: mole, rabbit, hedgehog, owl, fox, badger, bear, and mouse. Afterward, the kids colored their own mittens and went on a "mitten" hunt in the Library. Everyone who found the hidden mitten received a prize. Following the program, parents joined their children to look for books.
