Youth members of Encore Theatre Co. presented a shortened version of ‘Charlotte’s Web’ at the Lebanon Library on Tuesday morning.

Nearly 100 children and their parents, along with members of the community, stopped by to see the dozen-or-so actors present the play. The play began at the start of the story and ended when Charlotte and Wilber become friends.

The play is one of many activities the library hosts throughout the year. During the summer when the children are out of school the library will put on its summer reading program.

Among the activities this summer are magicians such as Bruce Amato and Kevin Kidd, characters such as Ronald McDonald and The Nashville’s Sounds’ Booster, as well as science and live animal shows.

“This is a chance for the children to see things they usually don’t get a chance to see,” said children’s librarian Nancy Fowler. “Encore was excited to come and present the play. I wish I’d been able to see the entire show. They presented seven shows and they were all sold out. It was really neat to see.”

Fowler said 1,900 children are signed up for this summer’s reading program and they have until Thursday, June 30 to sign up for the program. 

For more information, call the library at (615) 444-0632 or visit them at 108 S. Hatton Avenue in Lebanon.
