Literature Live!

Changing Lives,
One Story at a Time!

Literature Live! is the Austin Public Library’s own puppetry and storytelling troupe. They create and perform shows throughout Austin’s library system, in addition to special shows for schools and museums. The puppeteers are masters of bringing literature to life through puppetry, storytelling, song and movement, helping to form a lifelong bond between children and reading.
