Writing Workshop

Tuesday, August 2, 3:30-4:45

For students entering grades 5-8

Come to one or to all six. We will be meeting outside but under cover so will meet rain or shine. In Writing Workshop we will share stories, poems or anything else you want to create. We’ll work on art and writing projects, play a game and maybe do a group project. The main thing is to have fun. It’s summer, after all!




Special Event: Steve Blunt

Wednesday, August 3, 10-11

Entertainer Steve Blunt presents Down by the Bay: Songs in the Key of Sea at the Freedom Elementary School gym.

Flap your fins & flop your tails! Steve performs ocean-themed songs & stories guaranteed to make a splash at the library. “Five Little Fishies” is a counting finger play that celebrates little minnows going off to school. “The Boston Come-All-Ye” is a salty old shanty in which the fish of the sea take over a sailing ship. “Do the Octopus” is a rockin’ original tune that invites everyone to wave their tentacles and dance like a marine invertebrate. Big and little fish alike will be hooked by this summer reading show—with plenty of fun, upbeat songs in the key of sea.

Aimed at children ages 0-10 and their caregivers, but all are welcome to attend.
