Watauga County Library Summer Reading Kick Off – June 8, 2018

This is the last week of school in Watauga County. Please mark your calendars for Watauga Library Youth Services: Summer Reading 2018 program kick off, ice cream social, Friday, June 8, at 2 pm.

Music brings people together; throughout history and around the world, music has been a special part of people’s lives, and it continues to play a fundamental role in celebrations, self-expression, communication, connection, and daily life. Whether you’re a fan of classical, jazz, oldies, country, or peace and quiet, this summer’s manual has something for you! Through books, games, musical experiences, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities, participants will interact with music and sound in a wide variety of ways. Learn about famous musicians, try your hand at making an original instrument, find out about the science behind the music you love, think about the music that nature is making every day, and rock your way all the way around the world with hands-on activities for children and families. Lace up your dancing shoes, plug in your microphone, and get ready for a swingin’ summer as you and your patrons celebrate the fact that libraries rock!
