Jim Gills Family Concert at the Union Twp. Library!
Union Twp. Branch
Friday, Sep. 26, 6-7 p.m.
Register Online or call (513)528-1744.

Join us for a special family concert with Jim Gill at the library. Mr. Gill has a unique approach to his concerts for young children and families. This is because his graduate studies in child development have convinced him that family play is more important to young children than music alone.

Each of Jim’s concerts is an active sing-along and clap-along. He bangs out energetic rhythms on his banjo while everyone claps, jumps, dances and even sneezes along. The concert is filled, of course, with songs and stories from Jim’s award-winning recordings and books for young children.

Jim’s true art is to create a joyful musical experience for children and parents together. He is a nationally acclaimed author and musician. Over the years his recordings and books have received five separate awards from the American Library Association.

For more information or to receive a reminder call before the concert, call the library at 528-1744. Or register online to receive a reminder email.

Prompts for the week of August 21, 2014
 
PROMPT
Each year a fifties dance is put on by a group of us that went to a place called the Toot’n Tellit.  It was a hangout for the teenagers here in Burg.  This is where we all learned to dance to some of the best music ever written.  I have currently been working with the committee so in honor of that let’s see what kind of stories we can come up with from fifties music song titles.

You are walking to your car when you pass a boy selling newspapers on the street. He doesn’t look like he’s getting any customers, so you buy a copy, only to discover that it’s dated a week from today. And one particular story makes you realize you need to take action—now! What is the story that gets you moving and what happens when you decide to change this event?
