Music to Move By with Ann Wild

Ann Wild presented her program, Music to Move By, to our smallest library patrons from babies to toddlers on Wednesday, February 2nd and it was a musical blast!

Parents and children played with shakers, drums, scarves, parachute games and listened to Ann Wild play her guitar!  Moms and Dads learned new ways to introduce current popular music to their children - you don't just have to listen to the Wiggles & Raffi. Good time was had by all!

Check our EVENTS for more programs at the Pemberton Library. We have 2 Tumblin' Tots sessions, Parachute Play, Saturday Story Times coming up in addition to our regular scheduled story times so check out these FREE programs for the little ones. Register ONLINE!

Babies listen while Ann Wild plays her guitar!

Even the moms have fun! :)
