The Blue Hill Public Library is pleased to announce the return of a special weekly music and movement program for infants and toddlers on Wednesdays during the first half hour of the Library’s “Playgroup” starting March 27 at 10:30 a.m. The sessions will be led by early childhood music educator Debora Reinke. Caregivers and children will be encouraged to listen, chant and physically respond to age-appropriate songs that encourage language skills and stimulate brain development. Along with the music, Deborah will use silk scarves, musical instruments and other items during the sessions. The program will be weekly through May 8, with the exception of April 24.
In conjunction with these sessions, the library will be circulating kits of music CDs, musical instruments and songbooks for parents to check out. Families will be able to bring home what they learn from Deborah’s program and continue to provide a rich musical environment for their children at home.
The music sessions are made possible by Friends of the Library. Space is limited so registration is required. Parents can register their children for each session they want to attend on the Library’s interactive events calendar at www.bhpl.net or by calling the Library at 374-5515. Registration for each week’s session starts one week before. Regular playgroup on these dates will start at 11 a.m.
