From the Director We are pleased to provide you with our new Nashville Public Library publication, Unbound! Unbound is an added dimension to the library’s online presence in print form.

Frugality and Creativity Benefit Library Jennifer Hunsicker A few years ago, Hadley Park Branch was one of several NPL branches to receive the benefits of a grant for puppets. As a result of this grant, Hadley Park Branch received over 40 puppets. Librarian and Branch Manager Linda Emerson wanted to better utilize the puppets at the Hadley Park Branch. Emerson wanted a puppet theatre. 28
After finding the cost of pre-made puppet theatres to be excessive, she used her research skills to find out how to make one herself. Emerson says, “One person had converted an old tv console into a puppet theatre.” She then searched local thrift shops and flea markets for just the right piece of furniture. She found an old dresser, gutted it, and
then nailed the front of the drawers back on. She selected paints and material for the curtains. After painting it, she had a tailor make the curtains. Now, the Hadley Park Branch has a puppet theatre for under $150 in materials cost. The Hermitage Branch Library heard of her creation and requested one of their own. While the Hadley Park Cont’d. 29

Branch theatre is red and dark blue with silver accents, Linda Emerson the Hermitage theatre will be light green, and light blue with gold accents. Emerson moved here from southwestern On-
tario, Canada. When asked why she chose Nashville, Emerson tells us that music was definitely one of the draws. “I came here on a road trip with my sister to go honky-tonkin’ and really liked it. When I got home, I researched the city and found out about the job.” She moved here in 2000 during the time when the five big area libraries and
the Main library were built. She laughs as she adds, “I had only intended to stay two years.” It’s now been nearly 13! With frugality and creativity, Linda Emerson has not only brought us her talent as a librarian and manager, but she has created a useful piece of art which will be used in the community for years to come.
Build a Puppet Theatre
• Find ornately ugly dresser. Remove drawers – of dresser, that is! • Knock out supporting cross-pieces with hammer, or saw off flush with sides. • Knock off backs of bottom drawers. • Sand rough edges to avoid splinters. • Choose paint. • Spray a couple coats of paint. • Attach bottom drawer faces. • Paint trim. (I painted trim on drawer faces before attaching them) • Spray clear coat. (Don’t panic if it looks cloudy at first.) • Choose fabric and embellishment (optional). • Hem fabric for curtains. • Buy tension rod and hang curtains. • Use hot glue gun for embellishments. • Back panel of fabric can be used for a backdrop, along with tension rod. • Find someone with a truck to help transport it. • Add puppet.
