Cowboy Fairy Tales

It’s just a few more days until Cowgirl Peg comes to visit!  Come to the library this Friday, October 1, from 2:00 to 3:00 in the afternoon.  You don’t need to sign up or get tickets ahead of time.  Just come to the large meeting room on the lower level.  The program is free and children of all ages are welcome.  You can even buy one of Cowgirl Peg’s children’s books after the program and ask her to sign it for you.

If you’re looking for some western or southwestern stories, try this list of fairy tales.  Some of them are cowboy twists on familiar fairy tales, and some are tall tales from the world of cowboys and cowgirls.
