MEXICO — The Mexico Public Library will host a special program at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 20, as part of its summer program. 

The end-of-summer reading celebration will have as special guests the Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers, who will perform their show, “Everybody Loves Pirates.” The  professional puppetry troupe, based in Bar Harbor, is comprised of three siblings, Erik and Brian Torbeck and Robin Erlandson. Founded in 2000, the troupe has performed at fairs, festivals, theaters, parades, schools, libraries and petting zoos. All of their shows were written by them and are performed by their handmade puppets.

“Everybody Loves Pirates” is the story of a young girl named Lucy and her goofy friend, Little Chucky. While fishing one day, the kids discover a treasure map and decide to set out on a quest to find their fortune. They run into a group of bumbling pirates who try to thwart their efforts by stealing the treasure, but it all works out in the end.

The show will be held at the Calvin Lyons Hall, next door to the library. A donation box will be available to help defray the cost of the show. 

Following the show, summer reading awards, prizes and certificates will be given to participants of the summer reading incentive program, “Captain Book and the Bookaneers.” A pizza and soda lunch will conclude the morning’s events for those who have participated in the summer reading program.
