Kansas Reads to Preschoolers

Last month was Kansas Reads to Preschoolers month. I love this time of year as I get to visit the preschool and see some new faces! Our book this year was "Ten Pigs: An Epic Bath Adventure" by Derek Anderson. We had fun reenacting the story, and yes, 10 preschoolers really can fit in one small pool, but what happens when the wolf comes . . . Stop by the Library to check out this fun story and other specially selected Kansas Reads to Preschoolers books.

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!
