We can’t wait for you to hear the drumming and see the joyful dancing of the Akanni Omowale African Drummers and Dancers at our Senegal Family Cultural Celebration on Sunday, January 17 at 2:00 pm at the Traverwood Branch library. Akanni Omowale recently performed at the Museum of African American History in Detroit. After the music and dance we will enjoy a traditional treat and then make colorful giraffe collages. All ages are invited!
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!
