I am really looking forward to silly singing and storytelling with my talented banjo buddy, Noah Haiduc-Dale, on December 29 at 10 am at the Downtown Library. We have a ridiculous story/song involving lots of snorts, clucks and quacks, to get the whole family in on the act. Noah has been entertaining us this past session at storytime and we love to march and dance to Jim Gill songs!
While I’m feeling all mushy this season, it occurred to me that four talented children’s authors who live in A2 also happen to be some of the nicest people to walk into our library. So Shutta Crum, Jacqui Robbins, Joan Blos and Nancy Shaw, here is a big thank you for doing what you do. If anyone has an Ann Arbor cutie who just needs a good read this holiday season, you need go no further than your own home town!
The little ones love to move to the beautiful piano music of Kathryn Goodson, who joins Gari Stein for a story and creative movement a few times a year when the AADL partners with the A2SO. This Friday, at 9:30 am and 10:30 am, we’ll have a special treat because the talented Arie Lipsky will be here to talk “conducting” with the very young. What fun!
Dianne Dudley will lead DANCING BABIES program @ Traverwood Branch on Saturday, Nov. 7, 11:00-11:40 a.m. Bring your dancing feet, and rhythm beats. The program is for children under 5 years old with their adult companions.
You will never see a cuter bunch of witches, ghosts, black cats, and other outrageous costumed creatures than at the Downtown Ann Arbor District Library on Friday, October 30th for storytimes at 9:30 and 10:30 am. After storytime head to Main Street for Trick-or-Treat heaven!
If ladybug had her way, she would never raise a wing to fly, she is just that lazy! One sneeze from enormous elephant changes all that. Everything is upside down and topsy turvy at next week’s storytimes on Tuesday 10 am and Wednesday 11 am at the Downtown Library.
Discover the history of Ann Arbor through 6000 pages of historical texts and over 800 images. This partnership between the AADL, the University of Michigan University Library and the Bentley Historical Library also includes collections of postcards, historic buildings, and maps of early Ann Arbor.
