Children’s Music Festival Returns To Metropolitan Library System


What is the Children’s Music Festival? 

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.

“2011 marks the third time we’ve presented a Children’s Music Festival,” said Metropolitan Library System Children’s Services Coordinator Lisa Wood.  “We began the series in 2009 hoping that it would become an annual event, and happily it did.”

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 for them as browsing a toy store.

The festival will be held over six days, from July 24 through July 29, and at 14 libraries,” Wood said.  “Everyone’s invited.”
