Kids to Meet Orchestra at the Library
We have added a new “Meet the Orchestra” event to our summer program lineup for kids on Thursday, August 11, at 10:30 a.m. After reading a story about an orchestra, children will be treated to a live demonstration of some orchestral instruments and have an opportunity to try playing them. Local musician Carol Preston of Damariscotta will present this fun way to explore the world of classical music. Preston is a violinist with 30 years of experience teaching violin and serving as concertmaster of orchestras in Maine and the Washington, DC, area. She recently concluded a career as a public school music teacher where she taught grades K-8.
This program is geared toward children ages 4 to 8 years old, and is open to the public.
The Maine State Library is asking for people to please take this very quick and painless survey about eReaders. Thanks to all who do so!
