Thanks to the generous support of Music Matters, the library is able to offer composition classes taught by local music teacher, Ms. Kuhlow! Kids will learn to use the library's new Midi Controller (a digital keyboard) and educational software to compose music during this 8 week course.

Family Stories and C
Thursday, May 30, 6:00 p.m.
Ages 4-11
It's almost summer! This year, Adventure Begins at Your Library. In order to get ready for our summer adventures ahead, we're making an Adventurer's Pack. Children make an adventure journal, a compass, and a pouch in which to hold their treasures. Work on your materials while listening to adventure books and songs and while learning about our Summer Reading Program. This craft requires a little more dexterity than your average 3-year-old has and the books are a little longer than your average 2-year-old can sit for. However, we'll have coloring pages to keep any younger siblings busy.
