Summer Program – Recycled Rhythm [5+] - Wednesday, August 8th at 5:00 PM

 

Buckets, boxes, garbage cans, and more come to life in this stage production, blending dance, music and theatrical elements while educating students on the importance of recycling.

Recycled Rhythm allows students to be creative while discovering the beauty within themselves and the rhythm all around us.

We show the students that you have to use your imagination to create a vision or idea.

Please join us at the Parker Williams Branch Library at 5 PM on Wednesday, August 8th in the Library Community Room.

Book Hunters in Brief #147: Rocking Memoirs

On this week when Bob Dylan became a Nobel Laureate, and Bruce Springsteen is in the midst of a book tour as opposed to his customary arena-packing, six-encores and a cross-stage vamp kind of tour, Book Hunters got to thinking about musicians on paper. Below is just a sampling of what some musicians have to say that they could not say in a song.

Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson
