Songs and stories at the library tonight

Tonight, Thursday, Aug. 2, at 7 p.m., the Jamestown library invites children ages 4 years and over to come with their families to a performance by musician and music teacher Greg Cooney.

Cooney uses songs and stories that will get the audience up and involved with the performance. Music is a mystery. What makes us tap our toes and sing along? During the show, Cooney introduces fun facts about how music is made.

The show will begin with a few songs and stories, but will quickly move into musical action. Cooney performs a musical "show and tell" of instruments made from items not normally used for music making: PVC pipes, wrenches, plastic drink bottles, and things found in the kitchen sink.

Registration is not required for this free, 45-minute performance.

This program is part of the Summer Reading Program, "Get a Clue @ Your Library," and is sponsored by the Friends of Jamestown Philomenian Library, the RI Office of Library and Information Services, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, McDonald's Restaurants of Rhode Island and the Citizens Bank Foundation.
