2021 Children's Summer Challenge
Online Kickoff Concert w/ Animal Farm
Did you miss the concert when it streamed on May 29th? Don't worry! It is available for on demand viewing right here on the library's Facebook Page until June 18th! You do not need to have a Facebook account to watch.

Watch this fun interactive and energetic concert which blends music, educational comedy, and storytelling! Animal Farm's original songs draw from a range of influences, including rock, jazz, folk, Klezmer, Afro-pop, Latin, and Tin Pan Alley. Their songs are layered, both musically and lyrically, for audiences of all ages and explore themes of social and emotional learning, community, and self-expression through the eyes of our furry, feathered, scaly, and shell-dwelling friends.
