The Greenville-Butler County Public Library is hosting talented puppeteer and mask artist Doug Berky on July 1 at 2 p.m.

The program is free to all.

“We’re extremely excited to have Doug Berky join us this year during our Summer Reading schedule,” said Library Director Kevin Pearcey. “Doug is a national touring theater artist and I know anyone who comes will enjoy seeing his performance.”

Berky presents stories from around the world by weaving together many art forms into a full stage, large mask theater production with clever and creative costuming. Masks, puppets, mime, drama, comedy, music, and storytelling are integral elements that help the audience to experience these treasures of wisdom. “Some of the masks he performs with are works of art in themselves,” said Pearcey.

Call the library at 382-3216 for more information.
