Discover the Science of Music - June 21st

The Library will be ROCKIN' this Thursday, June 21st from 10:30 to 11:30 as kids discover the Science of Music. Rocky Krueger and Albus Huskey will be on guitar, Alice on flute and Nicki Hansen on drums and percussion. 

We will demonstrate how to make a xylophone out of water glasses and rubber band guitars. Done that before? How about a xylophone made from wrenches?

Children will have the opportunity to try out a variety of different kinds of instruments while learning how each one makes its own unique sound.

A grand finale concert will feature castanets, shakers, flutes and spin drums that the children can take home to entertain the whole family!

This is a free event that all ages will enjoy!

Thanks Milford Nature Center

Vanessa Avara from Milford Nature Center presented a fun and education program about some of nature's musicians at the library on June 14th. The children loved the frogs, screech owl and especially the tiny baby bat!

Decorate Rocks at the Library

Ages 2 to 16 had fun decorating rocks at the Rock Decorating/Decoupage program on June 7th. It was a successful program with about 50 participants.

We have a rock decorating station up in the basement at the Library if anyone wants to come give rock decorating a try. Come anytime during Library hours!
