Children’s Metro MusicFest Returns to MLS Libraries, July 25-30

What is the Children’s MusicFest? 

It’s original songs that tell stories and celebrate reading and the arts. It’s interactive, fun and participatory, and it’s for kids of all ages.

“2010 marks the second time we’ve presented a Children’s MusicFest,” said Metropolitan Library System Children’s Services Coordinator Lisa Wood.  “Last year’s event was so successful we just had to create a sequel.”

The Metropolitan Library System has been creating and presenting programs for children for decades, and the librarians have learned that kids respond to music better than just about anything else.  A wide variety of musical styles is almost as much fun for them as browsing a toy store.

“Our festival will be held over six days in July and at 14 libraries,” Wood said.  “Everyone’s invited.”
