It's a storytime. It's a concert. It's a special program by Chicago based musician Anna Stange. Anna will be in the area for just a few days so this will be her first and possibly only performance in the Roaring Fork Valley this year. She plans to do songs in Picture Book form, finger plays and lap songs, and some songs using rhythm instruments. This program is open to all children, including daycares and preschools.
Singing Storytime takes place at the Gordon Cooper Branch Library on Tuesday, April 2 at 10:30 am.
"In my pocket I placed a poem,
to share with those in need.
A poem so colorful and full of life,
It lifted up souls indeed."
Each week in April at the Rifle Branch Library you are invited to try your hand at writing a poem in various formats. The catch? You must first pluck a piece of paper from the Poetic Pockets on the wall and use the words that are on that piece of paper in your poem. When you have finished your masterpiece, turn it in at the front desk so that we may share it with our community.
Come to the Glenwood Springs Branch Library on the fourth Thursday of every month from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. for Paws to Read!
