Join the Children's staff of the Athens-Clarke County Library as they perform their puppet show, The Ant and the Grasshopper, an adaptation of the picture book by Luli Gray. It is a play on the classical Aesop's Fable where Ant works very hard through the year to gather food and prepare for the long winter while carefree Grasshopper sings and dances the days away. The show is lively, full of music, and fun for all ages.
