Sini Peltola 

Sini Peltola works at Espoo City libraries with a focus on children, among other things as a booktalker. In addition to library and information studies, she has studied puppetry at Turku Arts Academy. In her work, Sini combines children’s literature and puppetry. She has used puppets during storytime and taught children puppet making. Working at libraries, she has performed tens of times for hundreds of children in Espoo. Sini has been collaborating with Kolibrí Festivaali since 2015. In her collaboration with Espoo City Library and Kulttuurikeskus Ninho ry, two puppet shows have been created, “Litle Hummingbird Napo” and “My Mother Is a Porcupine”, which is making a comeback this year. In her work, what Sini enjoys the most is the wonder children experience during shadow puppetry.
