The Garfield County libraries are happy to be noisy places

If it sounds like a duck and walks like a duck, it must be a duck, right? Well, maybe not! Charlie Williams from Sound Safari Theater is a vocal sound impression expert who can imitate the sound of planes, trains and automobiles. This talented performer is also a kids’ comedian, author and illustrator. In one of his typical shows you might hear chain saws, dinosaurs, monster trucks and even flushing toilets.

This summer enjoy Charlie as he brings, “Pop! A Comedy Noise Explosion!” to Garfield County as part of the Library District’s Summer Reading Program. Hear washing machine slurps and dinosaur burps; see the Star Wars Saga acted out in three minutes; enjoy a funny face workshop; laugh at a sticky story of bubble gum; and learn to make noise imitations for your own creative stories.

Williams encourages kids to laugh at everyday annoyances, because humor is an important life skill. Parents will get in touch with their inner (noisy) child. Everyone will learn some vocal impressions of their very own. Williams believes “the family that makes noise together is a family that enjoys together.”

Charlie Williams resides near Seattle. He’s worked as a DJ, a cartoonist, a children’s librarian and a dishwasher. A funny dishwasher. He is the author and illustrator of “Flush! An Ode to Toilets,” a fun picture book about the sounds of a variety of toilets.

Williams will be performing in the following locations:

Sopris Park Pavilion in Carbondale on Monday, June 29, at 6 p.m.

Bea Underwood Elementary School in Parachute on Tuesday, June 30, at 10 a.m.
