Women made a tremendous impact on American puppetry throughout the 20th century, and much of this history can be found in the Center for Puppetry Arts very own research library!  Learn about this inspiring history as we enjoy highlights from books, videos, archival photos, artifacts and journals in the Nancy Staub Research Library and the Marjorie Batchelder McPharlin Collection.  Celebrate women’s broad contributions to American puppetry and find out what it takes to protect them.
